Be a responsible dog owner
1080 is designed to kill pests in our forest, but it can kill dogs if they are allowed in poisoned areas.
These signs are for you and your dogs’ protection. Be a responsible dog owner and stay out of areas where you see these signs.
If you must enter the area keep your dog on a leash and keep them well fed and hydrated. Stay clear of any dead carcasses and at no time should you let your dog roam free.
Prevention against poisoning is always better than trying to treat a dog that has been poisoned.
