Other planned events: 1080 fox baiting program

NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service is undertaking 1080 ground baiting of foxes within Warrumbungle National Park.

This baiting program will run from Tuesday 8 October until Friday 8 November 2019. It will reduce the impacts of foxes on wildlife and threatened species in the park and neighboring stock.

There will be 1080 baiting signs at the entrance to baiting areas. Don’t touch baits or ejector devices. Some baits may be buried. Penalties apply for non-compliance.

Domestic pets, including dogs, are not permitted in national parks or reserves. 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) baits are lethal to domestic dogs and cats. Restrain working and assistance dogs to ensure that they don't enter the baiting areas. If you need your dogs to work in the baiting area, we suggest muzzling them. In the event of accidental poisoning, seek immediate veterinary advice.

For more information, contact the local park office on: 02 6842 1311 or 1300 072 757 after hours.
