Safety alerts: 1080 fox and wild dog program underway
1080 poison feral animal baiting restarts on selected roads in Watagans National Park from Tuesday 17 November 2020 to Wednesday 30 June 2021. The baiting is also occurring on some adjacent properties with the permission of land-owners. Roads affected include:
- Rope Road
- Bowmans Road and part Harris fire trail
- Ingles Road
- Carrolls Road
- Georges Road
- Turners Road
Visitors and neighbours are reminded that domestic animals are not permitted in the national park at any time. 1080 poison is toxic to domestic cats and dogs. Seek urgent veterinary care if you suspect your animal has taken a bait.
The baiting is targeting foxes and wild dogs which are a major predator of native wildlife including brush-tailed rock wallabies.
