Territory and Municipal Services wishes to advise residents that a Rabbit Control Program will be undertaken on the Mount Painter, Mount Majura and Mount Ainslie Nature Reserves over the next three months, commencing on Monday 1 February 2010.
This program involves the use of Pindone Rabbit Poison and Phosphine Gas Fumigation and may involve the use of heavy machinery. Pindone is widely used throughout Australia to control rabbit populations within the urban area. Whilst the poison is considered low risk to domestic animals, Vitamin K1 is an antidote to this poison.
Dog walkers are advised to keep dogs on leads at all times and stay well away from operating machinery. Warning signs have been erected at all public access points into the Nature Reserves.
