Extensive wild dog and fox control program planned

Greater Sydney Local Land Services is about to embark on an extensive wild dog and fox control program around the Central Coast from April 8 to May 14 and warns residents to keep domestic pet and working dogs restrained.

“As a result of strong support from local landholders, National Parks, Central Coast Council and the Forestry Corporation, we have been able to develop and lead a broad, integrated pest animal control program,” a spokesperson said.

“The high number of properties involved has been critical to achieving optimal outcomes and is crucial to the success of the program’s implementation.

“This program is part of our ongoing work to reduce pest animal numbers and their impact on primary production and native wildlife in these areas.”

The spokesperson said 1080 wild dog and fox ground baits and Canid Pest Ejectors would be laid on multiple properties.

Participating properties are located at Wyrrabalong National Park, Tuggerah Nature Reserve and Tuggerah State Conservation Area, Wyong Creek, Dooralong, Pioneer Dairy at Wyong, Little Jilliby, Ravensdale, Jilliby, Central and Lower McDonald, Peats Ridge, Lower Mangrove, Kulnura, Greengrove, Somersby, Little Patonga Beach, Kincumber, Mangrove Creek Catchment, Mangrove Mountain and Mooney Creek Catchment.

A comprehensive list of properties appears on Page 37.

  1. Absolutely disgusted that the 1080 program is continuing. So called “wild dogs” are in fact most case native Dingo species. We need to see an immediate ban to this cruel and inhumane practice.

  2. Thats ridiculos and cruel to kill/ poison the animals
