Dog Baits in Pilbara - From ABC.


DANGER: WILD DOG BAITING UNDERWAY

Authorities have urged tourists and visitors to the Pilbara to take steps to protect their pets as a region-wide baiting program kicks off today.

Bill Currans, the executive officer of the Pilbara Regional Biosecurity Group, says the aerial-baiting will target wild dogs, which attack and injure cattle, and prove costly to pastoralists.

Thousands of 1080 meat baits will be dropped from aircraft mainly across pastoral properties, and well away from towns and cities, he says.

"I'd try and avoid taking my dog out on pastoral land or I'd buy a good muzzle and keep my dog muzzled if I have to take it out on pastoral land or public land in the Pilbara for the next six months," he said.

This danger to dogs exists ALL OVER AUSTRALIA, and not just in pastoral land, but National parks and many other areas too.
And just because you are no where near where they may have laid baits is NO PROTECTION as birds are known to shift them long distances.
Best leave your pets at home.
Cheers,
Peter
