2019 aerial wild dog baiting program

Our biosecurity staff will be running a spring aerial wild dog baiting program in September 2019 to support landholders’ paddock-based wild dog control work.

Aerial baiting will be done using 1080 wild dog meat baits on Crown Land and private properties in the areas of:

  • Euchareena
  • Stuart Town
  • Mumbil
  • Wuuluman
  • Twelve Mile
  • Dapper
  • Dunedoo
  • Leadville
  • Merrygoen.

This will be done in these areas where ground baiting is unpractical due to the terrain and access, and supports the ground baiting programs that have been run by landholders since July.

This program has increased to 200 km of bait lines since being first run by Central West Local Land Services last year (50 km). We are working to increase this further to include additional areas in the future.

People visiting these areas need to take precautions not to let their dogs stray on properties that are participating.

Participating properties can be identified by 1080 wild dog baiting signs on their gates.

Participating landholders have notified their neighbours and a notification letter is sent out by the Local Land Services to all landholders in these areas.

For further information about the program contact Senior Biosecurity Officer Rhett Robinson on 0428 462 474 or Biosecurity Officer Luke Milsom 0409 823 064
