Other planned events: 1080 fox baiting program underway
Australian Wildlife Conservancy carries out continuous 1080 fox baiting in Pilliga State Conservation Area and the Gilgai section of Pilliga National Park. This applies from Monday 23 September 2019 to Wednesday 23 September 2020.
Fox baits and Canid Pest Ejectors containing 1080 poison (sodium fluoroacetate) are laid across the entire state conservation area north of Railway Survey Road and west of Pickaxe Road.
Domestic pets, including dogs, are not permitted in national parks or reserves. All neighbours and visitors to the park must be aware that 1080 baits are lethal to domestic dogs and cats. We recommend that dogs in the area where baiting is underway be restrained or muzzled at all times. In the event of accidental poisoning, seek immediate veterinary assistance.
