Rabbit control - Plenty Gorge Park

Tuesday 11 April, 2017

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 carrot bait trails containing Pindone on public land for the control of rabbits.

Baits containing Pindone will be laid at strategic sites and other known areas of rabbit habitat within the Morang Wetlands and Hawkstowe Picnic areas of Plenty Gorge Park from Tuesday 18 April to Wednesday 10 May 2017.

Pindone 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 baits or bait stations.

Domestic dogs and cats are susceptible to Pindone and should be kept away from poisoned areas. If you suspect your pet has been poisoned, the antidote for Pindone is Vitamin K1.
