Wild dog group urges end to aerial baiting trials

Monday, May 26, 2008

The North-East Wild Dog Management Group says recent trials of aerial baiting show no evidence that it is effective and recommend that it be stopped. The Minister has agreed. This is great news. They also recommended more research on the effectiveness of 1080.

It’s a shame that an unknown number of non-target species and endangered quolls have probably been poisoned while this costly trial was carried out, more to silence noisy farmers than to achieve any useful outcome.
