NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) will be undertaking 1080 poison (sodium fluoroacetate) ground baiting for wild dog and fox control in Brisbane Water National Park. The program will start on Monday 6 May and finish by Monday 3 June 2019.
Domestic pets, including dogs, are not permitted in national parks or reserves. Neighbours and visitors are reminded that 1080 baits are lethal to domestic pets.
All areas will have 1080 baiting signs at access points to areas where baiting is taking place. In the event of accidental poisoning, seek immediate veterinary assistance.
We suggest that working dogs be restrained to ensure they do not enter the baiting location during poisoning operations. Or, muzzle dogs if they need to work the baiting location during and after the baiting program.
This baiting program is being carried out as part of a broader coordinated control program to reduce the impacts of wild dogs on stock and wildlife. If you would like to be involved in the cooperative program, please call Greater Sydney Local Land Services on 1300 795 299.
