Other planned events: 1080 aerial baiting program - wild dog and fox control
NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) will be conducting an aerial baiting program between Wednesday 22 May to Tuesday 28 May 2019. Baits containing 1080 poison will be deployed to reduce wild dog and fox numbers. The program is part of an integrated regional pest management strategy.
The program will be undertaken within the Dalgety/Paupong, Corrowong/Tombong/Merriangaah and Snowy Plain wild dog plan areas. Baits will be deployed in areas of Kosciuszko National Park including:
- Numbla Vale
- Lake Eucumbene
- Snowy River
- Byadbo Wilderness area
Aerial baiting is carried out in conjunction with ongoing ground baiting, trapping and shooting programs. These are aimed at protecting neighbouring stock from the impact of predation by these pest species.
Domestic pets are highly susceptible to 1080 poison. Dogs, cats, other pets and domestic animals are not permitted NSW national parks.
