Wingecarribee Shire Council : Ban the use of 1080 Poison

0 have signed. Let’s get to 2,500!

Force Wingecarribee Shire Council to prohibit the use of the deadly 1080 poison in our area. Used to ‘control’ feral animals mainly foxes. This toxin is banned everywhere apart from Australia, Israel, Japan, Korea, Mexico, and New Zealand. Why don’t other countries in the world use it? Because it is super toxic and can have devastating and catastrophic effects on unintended targets.

If domestic animals take the bait they will die. It’s a painful, prolonged death. There is no known antidote.

If other wildlife eats a carcass of an animal which has taken bait, it will die too!

The bait can be taken by ANY hungry animal, bird or reptile - it doesn’t discriminate. It kills. Slowly and very, very painfully. In the Wingecarribee family pets have recently been the victim of the dreaded poision.

Send our council a message objecting to the use of 1080. There are numerous other control methods available that are significantly safer, these include trapping or shooting by licensed and insured shooters including volunteers from local hunting clubs.

Let our Council know what you think. Don’t allow this deadly poison to go unnoticed. It has no place in our community.
