Other planned events: 1080 wild dog program
NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) will be using 1080 poison (sodium fluoroacetate) for wild dog control as buried baits and capsules in ejector devices in Palm Grove Nature Reserve. The program will start on Thursday 2 May 2019 and finish by Thursday 31 October 2019.
Domestic pets, including dogs, are not permitted in national parks or reserves. Neighbours and visitors are reminded that 1080 poison baits and capsules are lethal to domestic pets.
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 dogs be restrained to ensure they do not enter the baiting location during poisoning operations. Or, muzzle dogs if they are need to work the baiting location during and after the baiting program.
This program 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 be involved in the cooperative program, please call Greater Sydney Local Land Services on 1300 795 299.
