Birds are often unintended victims of the use of poisons as well as being the intended victims of Foxes. Of course this debate has something to do with birds.

I suspect that I line up on the pro 1080 side of the debate but I and most others don't have the data to prove that it works long term.

When 1080 is used to kill Foxes what happens to the dead animals? Are they left in the bush and if so does the poison remain in the corpse to then kill any (bird) scavengers that feed on it? Does anyone know the answer?

There is a potential impact on raptors here.


Hello John, and others

What has this got to do with birds?
