Hi all - a brief update on pest management - particularly to address any community concerns about rabbit bait pellets seen at Virginia Lake reserve recently: We have now removed all rabbit bait stations and are carrying out a thorough review of our pest control programme with our contractor. This will include improvements to signage and public information, as well as the timing of any pest control operations in future.

Our investigation found that the pellets were placed under a tree stump by a contractor managing pest control at the park on behalf of the Council. Whanganui District Council accepts responsibility for the way the baiting programme was carried out and our Chief Executive has apologised for the concerns this has raised in our community. We're going to urgently review the way...

Good morning everyone. Last night a Facebook post was widely circulated concerning the discovery of green pellets at Virginia Lake by a member of the public. Whanganui District Council’s Parks Team investigated the matter at first light today and we can confirm the pellets are rabbit poison that is available commercially – and not 1080. The area has been cordoned off and we will be meeting at the site with DOC, Police and our contractors who manage pest control at Virginia Lake...

Hi everyone. You may be aware that a Facebook post is circulating tonight regarding the discovery of 1080 or similar at Virginia Lake by a member of the public. Our parks team have notified DOC and the Police and they will visit the site first thing in the morning to assess the situation and determine how this may have occurred. Whanganui District Council does not use 1080 as a method of pest control.
