Request for feral pig/dingo baiting
Council undertakes 1080 baiting for control of dingoes, wild dogs and feral pigs. A co-ordinated wild dog baiting programme is held in May and October each year and is advertised in local newspapers. Landholders requiring to bait outside of these times should contact Council’s Land Protection Officers.
Council provides a free 1080 baiting service to landholders for the control and eradication of declared animals such as dingoes and feral pigs. Landholders provide the bait and feed the animals for a few days so they keep coming back to the baiting site. Once the animals are all feeding in the one site Council’s Land Protection Officer injects the bait with 1080 poison.
Note: Restrictions apply for accessing 1080 poison. 1080 baiting can only be done in rural areas as in town the landholder may poison a neighbours pets if they feed on the bait.
If you live close to town and are having problems with dingoes you may have to use dingo traps instead.
