Aerial baiting program for wild dog control in the Western region

Western Local Land Services is set to undertake its autumn aerial baiting program for the control of wild dogs, foxes and feral cats.

This is scheduled to occur between 2 April and 16 April, with 1080 (pronounced ‘ten eighty’) poison meat baits issued along pre-determined bait lines with the rate of application being 10 baits per kilometre.

The area covered through the program is from Enngonia in the north-east, to Broken Hill in the west, near Pooncarie in the south-west and to Mt Hope in the south-east.

Following the aerial baiting campaign, ground baiting will be carried out.

Western Local Land Services thanks participating landholders and stakeholders for their involvement in the program.
