Leigh Creek Station have recently laid dog baits. Dog lovers please be careful around the perimeters of the commons!

  1. You need to be vigilant everywhere. Crows can pick up these baits & drop them elsewhere, often many miles away.

  2. Sad but true, I’ve already lost a beautiful little friend to this terrible fate and the world seems a bit smaller knowing that poison is so close to home. I hope some day we’ll get better at solving problems than this. 🙁 amt

  3. If you do have the unfortunate experience of dealing with a dog killed by 1080, please dispose of the carcase carefully and quickly – according to the Tasmanian Conservation Trust,

    “The poison contaminates a carcase until it has totally decomposed. A dog can die an appalling death months after a 1080 drop, just by licking or chewing part of a decomposed poisoned carcase.”

    Thanks

  4. Now would seem the perfect time to approach our local
    body and organise a programe for de-sexing dogs/cats.
    Nepabunna have been doing this for a year – to follow their
    lead would seem like a sensible move.
    Dogs wander and eat/maim stock because they are hungry/not
    cared for – put the onus back to where it is – if you have animals
    in your life you need to be responsible for their care/behaviour.

    Poisoning is not humane…..but a sick band aide that masks the
    true problem,

    For All Creatures Great and Small……..
