The 1080 poison risk areas identified on these maps are for the Western Shield program only. Other 1080 baiting may occur in these areas but are not shown in these maps. For information about other Parks and Wildlife Service-based 1080 baiting programs contact your local District Office, and always look out for warning signage.
- Poison baiting operations extend from Karratha in the north, through forests of the south-west to areas east of Esperance.
- These baits are poisonous to humans and will kill domestic cats and dogs. Do not take your pets into areas baited with 1080.
- Baiting occurs on a regular and ongoing basis and baited areas must be considered dangerous for pet cats and dogs at all times.
- The baits are extremely attractive to dogs. Adjacent landowners should be vigilant in keeping their dogs from roaming into neighbouring baited areas.
- All baited areas are signposted with 1080 POISON RISK signage (see image above).
- If your pet eats a bait, take them to a vet immediately. See this first aid guide for other useful information.
