Other planned events: Notice of aerial baiting program
NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) will be conducting an aerial baiting program using baits containing 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) poison, for the control wild dogs and foxes. This program will be conducted in northern Kosciuszko National Park (Lake Eucumbene to Lone Pine Trail), along with Yaouk and Scabby Range Nature Reserves between Monday 13 September and Friday 17 September 2021.
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 must be restrained or muzzled in the vicinity and must not enter the baiting location. In the event of accidental poisoning seek immediate veterinary assistance.
Penalties apply for non-compliance. For further information please call Tumut Office on 02 6947 7000.
