Fox control – Wonthaggi and surrounds

Tuesday 30 October, 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 and deploying Canid Pest Ejectors containing Sodium Monofluoroacetate (1080 poison) on public land for the control of foxes. Baits and Canid Pest Ejectors containing 1080 poison will be laid during the period from 5 November 2018 until 5 May 2019.

Baits will be laid at strategic sites and other known areas of fox habitat within the following parks and reserves: Wonthaggi Heathlands Nature Conservation Reserve, Adams Creek Nature Conservation Reserve, Kilcunda-Harmers Haven Coastal Reserve and Lang Lang Education Area.

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 catsare particularly susceptible to 1080 poison and should be under effective control, muzzled or kept away from the baited areas.
