Pet owners warned over Bluff Point rabbit poison

Geraldton Guardian

The City of Greater Geraldton will begin rabbit baiting in a Bluff Point reserve tomorrow in an attempt to reduce the rabbit population.

From February 28 to March 7, specially-designed and covered bait stations will be put out at night in the Kempton Street reserve at Fuller Street.

Bait stations will contain oats mixed with Pindone, an anticoagulant poison similar to that found in many rat and rodent control baits.

A City spokesperson has requested community members manage their pets carefully while warning signage is present.

An antidote is available from veterinarians.
