Other planned events: 1080 aerial baiting pest management program
The NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) is conducting an aerial baiting program in Mount Royal National Park from Saturday 13 June to Friday 26 June 2020. The program uses meat baits containing 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) poison for the control of wild dogs and foxes.
This program is designed to minimise the impact of foxes on wildlife, especially after the recent bushfires, and to minimise the impact of wild dogs and foxes on neighbouring stock. There will be signs at all baiting locations.
Domestic pets are not permitted on NSW national parks. Pets and working dogs may be affected (1080 is lethal to cats and dogs). Pets and working dogs must be restrained or muzzled in the vicinity and must not enter the baiting location. In the event of accidental poisoning seek immediate veterinary assistance.
Penalties apply for non-compliance. For further information call the NPWS Bulga area office on 02 6574 5555 or the see NPWS web page alerts.
Affects 1 park and 2 locations nearby.
