Other planned events: Notice of ongoing 1080 wild dog and fox baiting program
NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) will be conducting a baiting program using meat baits and canid pest ejectors containing 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) poison for the control of wild dog and foxes. The program will be continuous and ongoing between Tuesday 12 May and Thursday 12 November 2020 in the following parks and reserves:
- The north east precinct of Kosciuszko National Park (within the Adaminaby/Yaouk Wild Dog Control Area)
- Yaouk Nature Reserve
- Scabby Range Nature Reserve
All baiting locations will be identifiable 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 in the vicinity must be restrained or muzzled and must not enter the baiting location. In the event of accidental poisoning seek immediate veterinary assistance.
