APVMA REVIEW THE USE OF SUPERTOXIN POISON 1080

0 have signed. Let’s get to 10,000!


APVMA is the Australian regulatory body authorising importation and use of Veterinary products, poisons and chemicals in this country.

IN 2008 APVMA REVIEW FINDINGS  SAID FEW DOGS DIED FROM 1080. 

APVMA DID NOT CONSIDER THE HUMANENESS OF 1080 BECAUSE, THEY SAID THAT WAS NOT PART OF THE SCOPE OF THEIR INVESTIGATION.  APVMA SAID THAT THE SCOPE OF THE REVIEW DID NOT INCLUDE A DECISION ABOUT "HUMANENESS" AND SUGGESTED THAT HUMANENESS OUGHT BE CONSIDERED ON ANOTHER OCCASION. WE FEEL THAT IS OVERDUE.

11 YEARS ON AND EVERY YEAR THOUSANDS OF DOGS DIE FROM 1080 BAITS AND SECONDARY POISONING ACROSS AUSTRALIA. THOSE DEATHS ARE GRUESOME, CRUEL AND INHUMANE AS WELL AS CAUSING INHUMANE AND PROLONGED DEATHS IN MANY SPECIES,  INCLUDING NATIVE WILDLIFE AND THREATENED SPECIES. 

APVMA MUST OPEN THE USE TO REVIEW,  CONSIDER THE OBVIOUS DEATHS OF THOUSANDS OF COMPANION ANIMALS AS WARRANTING A BAN ON 1080 IN AUSTRALIA, THE INHUMANENESS AND CLEAR GROWING RISK TO THE PUBLIC AS THE USE OF 1080 HAS BECOME LARGE SCALE, AND UNMONITORED.

AERIAL BAITING IS COMMON WITH BOTH BAITS AND POISONED CARCASS LEFT FOR BOTH DOMESTIC ANIMALS AND OTHER WILDLIFE TO FEED ON WITH HIGH LEVEL SECONDARY POISONINGS AND CRUEL DEATHS.

APVMA MUST REVIEW THE USE OF 1080 IN AUSTRALIA ON GROUNDS NOT LIMITED TO THE HIGH LEVEL OF DOMESTIC PETS DYING DUE TO POOR MANAGEMENT AND MUST REVIEW  AND CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS ON  ITS INHUMANENESS, SOMETHING NEVER BEFORE CONSIDERED.
