Toxic Poison including 1080 is Used to Kill Dingoes   

The use of Toxic Poisons in our environment to Kill Dingoes, aka "wild dogs"  is having  disastrous impact on the biodiversity of this country. The Dingo is our top order terrestrial predator, can maintain balance in our biodiversity without using any poisons. Using 1080 to Kill foxes is counterproductive and has achieved nothing but damage to the environment and leads to outbursts in breeding of foxes and feral cats. Governments must invest in research including immunocontraception, fund improved fencing and guardian animals.  Toxic poisons, used for 70 years in this country, are unnecessary have achieved nothing except line the pockets of bait makers.  Not only have toxins like 1080 brought about cruel and unnecessary deaths in millions of Dingoes, it kills native wildlife, has killed directly or indirectly the threatened Spot Tailed Quoll,  lizards, birds of prey, and companion animals. 26 Scientists have endorsed NOT killing our iconic Australian Dingo on environmental grounds and both Federal and State Government must sit up and listen.

Victorian Push to Renew Aerial Baiting    On 31 December 2019 the permission to aerial bait in Victoria will expire, it is unauthorised,  and Agriculture Department are seeking permission from the Commonwealth to renew this permission, most likely seeking to increase the areas of baiting. If approved, this will be nothing less than inhumane environmental vandalism.  We must oppose this renewal loudly. To allow it to happen will be cruel and inhumane, leading to the potential extinction of threatened species including the  Dingo and Spot Tailed Quoll. 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 killed the threatened Spotted Tail Quoll as well as native wildlife, birds, lizards and wallabies.

26 of our leading Scientists have stated in a letter to the Government they are opposed to the renewal of aerial baiting 1080 in Victoria, and should not be allowed to be renewed. 

Companion Animals Destroyed  1080 cruelly destroys dogs

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.
