Strychnine is a highly poisonous substance that is used in Western Australia for the control of wild dogs and emus. Its use is restricted by law and confined to certain areas of the State.
The Department of Agriculture and Food, Western Australia provides information on the use of restricted chemical products, relevant training, conducts property risk assessments and issues permits for use.
To obtain a permit to use strychnine you must demonstrate to your Biosecurity Officer that you understand and can carry out your responsibilities safely and your proposed use does not place non target species at risk.
