Poisons including 1080 are Used to kill Dingoes as well as shooting and hunting for pelts.   

The use of  poisons in our environment to kill Dingoes, aka "wild dogs"  is having  disastrous impact on the ecological biodiversity of this country. The Dingo is our top order land predator, and  maintains ecological  balance in the  biodiversity. Poisons, used for 70 years in this country, are unnecessary, and simply  lining the pockets of poisons manufacturers. 

Not only have toxins like 1080 brought about cruel and unnecessary deaths in millions of Dingoes,  kills native wildlife, has killed directly or indirectly the threatened Spot Tailed Quoll,  lizards, birds and raptor it is killing companion animals across Australia in unprecedented numbers. 

26 of Australia's leading environmental  Scientists have endorsed NOT killing our iconic Australian Dingo  on environmental grounds and both Federal and State Government must  listen.

Victorian Push to Renew Aerial Baiting    On 31 December 2019 the permission to aerial bait in Victoria was due to  expire, it is unauthorised,  and Agriculture Department sought permission from the Commonwealth Government to renew for another 5 years. 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 kills the threatened Spotted Tail Quoll as well as native wildlife, birds, lizards and wallabies. There is no research that has taken place about the affects of 1080 poison on species that survive from a small dose of poison, or those that are less susceptible.

Companion Animals cruelly destroyed by 1080 

Please meet Betty.

Rex 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. But these are only 3 of hundreds of thousands of domestic dogs that die each year in a cruel way.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.
