Toxic Poisons are Used to Kill Dingoes   The use of Toxic Poisons in our environment to Kill Dingoes is having a disastrous impact on the biodiversity of this country. The Dingo is our top order terrestrial predator, can maintain an ecological balance such that toxic poisons, used for 70 years in this country, are unnecessary and have achieved nothing.

Not only have toxins like 1080 brought about deaths in millions of Dingoes, it kills native wildlife, lizards, birds of prey, and companion animals. Thousands of dogs each year are destroyed, there is no antidote. There are reports from across Australia about marremas, guardian animals,  also being destroyed by 1080 toxic poison. Literally thousands of dogs are killed each week by 1080 and other poisons.

Companion Animals Destroyed

Please meet Rex  Betty, and Kenya.

On 11 April 2014, Rex died a painful death after eating  a Sodium Monofluoroacetate (1080) poisoned bait, in his suburban backyard in Collie, Western Australia. Tests undertaken  showed 1080 dry baits caused the death. Betty and Kenya met the same fate. Betty died before her young owners eyes, the family had stopped in the outback, no signs, no warnings about 1080.    Malu and 11 other camp dogs had a similar fate, no signs, no warnings. Baiting took place in a remote community near Indulkana,  with absolutely no regard for local populations. Graziers have no regard for others when it comes to 1080 baiting. Thousands of companion animals die each year in Australia from 1080 poison, many go unreported because it is so distressing for the owners to observe. A long, painful death.

Humans are Not Immune

How safe are humans? If a bird or fox can carry a bait 2 K (APVMA Review Findings 2008) how safe are we? APVMA tell us 1080 is too dangerous " for the general public". 

Native Wildlife

Native Wildlife suffer the same cruel and inhumane fate, including many endangered species. Wallabies, Spotted tail Quoll, a threatened species.

Victorian Push to Renew Aerial Baiting

On 31 December 2019 the permission to aerial bait in Victoria will expire and Department of Primary Industries will seek permission from the Commonwealth to renew this permission. We must oppose this renewal. Use of aerial baiting in six zones in Victoria has killed thousands of Dingoes, protected in Victoria under the FFG Act and directly and indirectly kill the threatened Spotted Tail Quoll.
