Other planned events: 1080 wild dog ground and aerial baiting program
NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) will be conducting a 1080 wild dog ground and aerial baiting program in Manobalai Nature Reserve:
- Ground baiting is expected to occur from Wednesday 1 May to Saturday 22 June 2019
- Aerial baiting is expected to occur from Wednesday 1 May to Tuesday 14 May 2019
In these baiting locations, NPWS will be using fresh meat with 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate).
This program is part of the Western Hunter Wild Dog Management Plan. It is being carried out as part of a broader coordinated control program to reduce the impacts of wild dogs on stock and wildlife. If you would like to become involved in the cooperative program, please call Hunter Local Land Services on 1300 795 299.
All baiting will be done in accordance with legal requirements under the Pesticides Act 1999. Although not expected, some non-target or domestic animals may be affected, particularly domestic dogs. Domestic pets are not permitted in Manobalai Nature Reserve.
We suggest that pets be restrained to ensure they don't enter the baiting location during 1080 baiting operations. We advise that working dogs needed on private property surrounding the reserve are muzzled. In the event of accidental poisoning seek immediate veterinary assistance.
For further information, please call the NPWS Wollemi Yengo area office on 02 6574 5555.
