Alice Burn TBfree operation posponed

Date: 14/08/2017


A Central Otago possum control operation to help eradicate bovine TB has been postponed indefinitely to enable further consultation with the local community.

Aerial 1080 operations use toxic baits that are biodegradable and highly water soluble. The baits contain 0.15% of 1080 poison, which naturally breaks down into harmless substances through the process of biodegradation and dilution. It does not accumulate or leave permanent residues in soil, plants, water or animals.
