Parks Victoria’s conservation management 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 ejectorbaits containing Sodium Monofluoroacetate (1080 poison)on public land for the control of foxes.  Baits containing 1080 poison will be laid from 19th March 2018 until 28th May 2018.

Baits will be laid at strategic sites and other known areas of fox habitat within the Broken Boosey State Park, between Katamatite and Tungamah.

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 poisoned areas.
