Baiting information

  • 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.
