Baiting Notice

1080 baiting is part of an integrated pest management program to protect livestock from death and injury within WA.

The poison baits remain toxic for many months, and are used by pastoralists throughout our state. Signage may not be in the immediate vicinity and can be weather damaged, removed or destroyed.

Please ensure you take caution when stopping along the roadside, rest areas and parking bays and protect your domestic pets from poison baits by keeping them on a lead, close to you and under control at all times.

If poisoning occurs, please seek immediate veterinary assistance.
