Fox control - Anglesea Heath and Great Otway National Park

Tuesday 21 October, 2014

Parks Victoria’s conservation management to restore and protect park habitat includes the control of introduced plant and animal species. As part of an ongoing strategy, notice is hereby given that Parks Victoria will be laying buried baits containing Sodium Monofluoroacetate (1080 poison) on public land for the control of foxes.  Baits containing 1080 poison will be laid from Monday 27 October until Monday 22 December 2014.

Baits will be laid at strategic sites and other known areas of fox habitat within the Great Otway National Park (Eastern Otways) and Anglesea Heath.

1080 poison signs will be posted throughout the baited area and members of the public who are living, visiting or working in the above named areas are advised to take particular care not to disturb or interfere with bait stations. Domestic dogs and cats are particularly susceptible to 1080 poison and should be under effective control, muzzled or kept away from the baited areas.
