Pet Owners Beware

1080 Poison Risk

Under the wildlife recovery program Western Shield, the Department of parks and Wildlife (DPaW) are carrying out 1080 fox and feral cat baiting operations in areas which extend from Karratha in the north, through forests of the south-west, to areas east of Esperance. 

Pet owners are being warned that large areas of State Forest, national parks and nature reserves are baited and must be considered dangerous for pet dogs and cats at all times.  DO NOT TAKE YOUR PETS IN AREAS BAITED WITH 1080.  Take your pet to a vet immediately if you suspect it has taken a bait.

All baited areas are signposted.  Maps of the baited areas can be viewed on DPaWs website at dpaw.wa.gov.au/westernshield

Pet Owners Beware pamphlet can be viewed here.
