Fox control – East Gippsland parks and reserves

Wednesday 24 January, 2018

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 fluoroacetate (1080 poison) on public land for the control of foxes.

Baits containing 1080 poison will be laid at strategic sites from 5 February 2018 until 30 June 2018 excluding school holiday periods within the following parks and reserves: Lake Tyers State Park and Mitchell River National Park.

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.
