**Authors note- Technically not fishing but a large majority camp out with their dogs when on fishing trips** I don't want to get dog owners who love taking their dog camping paranoid but I feel they should know or realise the dangers of fox baits when camping at their fave waterhole. At Easter I had the unfortunate experience of watching my mates dog die an agonising death while camped on the Edwards river near Kyalite, NSW. It turns out after talking to the locals that the area had been recently baited for foxes. Unfortunately there were no signs on the road way or on the public reserve we were camped to warn dog owners of the dangers which is legally supposed to happen. Fox baiting is essential to keeping the fox numbers down and I dont have a problem with it but if the baiting is not done in accordance to local legislation and not correctly informing the land users in the local area then I feel we have a problem. And to bait an area just before Easter where many famalies camp with their pets is just down right irrisponsible. I'm not a dog lover myself but to witness this poor innocent animal suffer like it did and to watch its family witness it was not a very pleasant memory that I ever want to see again. I'm doing a little research into fox baiting at the moment and trying to find out what group or individual was responsible for baiting this area to find out just what precautions and information passing had been done if any. If anyone here can add weight to this issue I would appreciate it very much indeed.
