Other planned events: Notice of 1080 baiting
NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) is conducting an aerial baiting program in Brisbane Water National Park and Popran National Park from Monday 11 October to Sunday 17 October 2021. The operation will involve the use of meat baits containing 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) poison for the control of wild dogs and foxes.
The program is designed to minimise the impact of foxes on wildlife, especially after the 2019-2020 bushfires, and to minimise the impact of wild dogs and foxes on neighbouring stock.
All baiting locations will be identified by signs. Domestic pets are not permitted in NSW National Parks and Reserves. Pets and working dogs may be affected (1080 is lethal to cats and dogs). Pets and working dogs must be restrained or muzzled in the vicinity and must not enter the baiting locations. In the event of accidental poisoning seek immediate veterinary assistance.
Penalties apply for non-compliance. Please contact the local NPWS area office for more information 02 4320 4200.
