Other planned events: 1080 fox baiting program underway

NSW National Parks carries out continuous 1080 fox baiting in Warrumbungle National Park. Fox baits and Canid Pest Ejectors containing 1080 poison (sodium fluoroacetate) are laid in the park north of Timor Road / John Renshaw Parkway.

Domestic pets, including dogs, are not permitted in national parks or reserves. 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.

This program protects the endangered brush-tailed rock-wallaby.
