Regional Services will be carrying out a poison operation on the property of Donald Young and adjoining properties in Lowburn. Carrot bait containing Sodium Fluoroacetate (1080) will be applied by both ground and plane.

We will also be carrying a poison operation on Mt Creighton Station with ground laid carrot bait containing Sodium Fluoroacetate (1080).

There will be a toxic application between 14th of July and the 20th of July 2014 (dependent on weather conditions).

Warning signs will be erected at all public access points to the treated area.

The public should note the following points:

  • DO NOT enter this area without permission.
  • DO NOT handle or remove carcasses, or baits.
  • DO NOT allow children to wander unsupervised in this area.
  • DO NOT allow dogs or pets to roam into the operational area as poisoned carcasses can be deadly to dogs.
  • Treat all carcasses as toxic.

Signs will remain in place until the area is safe. Please treat the area with caution until then.
