Tuesday 7 November, 2017

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 and deploying Canid Pest Ejectors containing Sodium Fluoroacetate (1080 poison) on public land for the control of foxes. Baits and Canid Pest Ejectors containing 1080 poison will be laid from 13 November 2017 until 11December 2017.

Baits will be placed at strategic sites and other known areas of fox habitat within the following reserves: Wonthaggi Heathlands Nature Conservation Reserve, Kilcunda – Harmers Haven Coastal Reserve and Adams Creek Nature Conservation Reserve.

1080 poison warning 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 catsare particularly susceptible to 1080 poison and are able to trigger Canid Pest Ejectors. All dogs and cats should be under effective control, muzzled or kept away from the baited areas.
