In April 2012 our dog Sienna was killed by a 1080 bait. No baits were laid by our neighbours or N.P.W.S. (we live within the South East Forrest National Park).
She died a terrible, slow and agonising death which was inhumane and unethical, as well as a deeply disturbing tragedy for us.
The facts on 1080 are as follows.
*1080 kills everything that breaths;
*1080 kills everything that ingests it, not just target species;
*1080 can be moved by birds & foxes onto private land;
*carcasses of 1080 victims are poisonous to scavenger species;
*1080 is a highly persistent poison & can remain lethal for over a year in dry times;
*1080 is an environmental poison;
*No investigation has been undertaken to determine the effects of 1080 on the environment;
*The N.S.W. Governmaent is trialling aerial baiting in remote areas;
*1080 is banned in all other countries except Australia & New Zealand.
