Other planned events: 1080 baiting for wild dogs
NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) will be undertaking 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) ground baiting for wild dog control in the following parks and reserves:
- Mount Hyland Nature Reserve
- Mount Hyland State Conservation Area
- Bagul Waajaarr Nature Reserve
The program starts on Thursday 30 May and will finish by Friday 30 August 2019.
This baiting program is being carried out as part of a broader coordinated control program cooperatively with Local Land Services and Forestry Corporation of NSW. This is to reduce the impacts of wild dogs on stock and wildlife. The program is part of an integrated regional pest management strategy.
Domestic pets, including dogs, are not permitted in national parks or reserves. Neighbours and visitors are reminded that 1080 baits are lethal to domestic pets.
In the event of accidental poisoning, seek immediate veterinary assistance.
