Other planned events: Notice of ongoing ground baiting program
NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) is conducting ongoing ground baiting programs in Kanangra Boyd National Park from Monday 2 May to Wednesday 2 November 2022.
The operation will use meat baits, meat bait products and canid pest ejectors containing 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) poison for the control of wild dogs and foxes.
The program is designed to minimise predator impacts on wildlife, especially threatened species, and to minimise impact of wild dogs on neighbouring stock.
Signs will be placed at the entry to the baiting location. Domestic pets are not permitted in NSW National Parks managed lands. 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.
Please contact the NPWS Kanangra area office at Oberon on 02 6336 6200 for more information.
