Wild dog ground baiting using 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) is planned for Belford National Park and Black Creek, North Rothbury from Monday 6 May to Friday 31 May 2019.

This program is part of a coordinated control program guided by the Central Hunter Wild Dog Management Plan, which aims to mitigate the impacts of wild dogs on stock and wildlife. If you'd like to be involved in the program, please call Hunter Local Land Services on 1300 795 299.

Although not expected, some non-target or domestic animals may be affected, particularly domestic dogs. While domestic animals aren't permitted in national parks, be extra vigilant in ensuring that pets and working dogs are controlled, and not allowed access to baiting locations during and after the program. If working dogs are being used, we suggest muzzling them during and after baiting. In the event of accidental poisoning, seek immediate veterinary assistance.
