Other planned events: Wild dog poison 1080 baiting program
NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) will be undertaking a 1080 poison (sodium fluoroacetate) aerial, ground baiting and canid pest ejector (CPE) program. This is for wild dog control and will be in Mudgee area reserves. The program will start on Monday 29 April and finish by Friday 2 August 2019.
Domestic pets, including dogs, are not permitted in national parks or reserves. Neighbours and visitors are reminded that 1080 baits are lethal to domestic dogs and cats.
All areas will have 1080 baiting signs at access points to areas where baiting is taking place. In the event of accidental poisoning, seek immediate veterinary assistance.
We suggest that working and assistance dogs be restrained to ensure they do not enter the baiting location during poisoning operations. Dogs should be muzzled if they need to work the baiting location.
This baiting program is being carried out to reduce the impacts of wild dogs on neighbouring properties stock and wildlife.
