"Let's notify the rest of the team at DOC..." "I think we've found our 1080 replacement." 20 August, 2007
Reference Number: DCDL-0003748
Shows a bush scene in which a group of possums have been given a box of toys and clothes. As they play with them and put on the clothes they get very sick. Two people watching from behind some bushes decide that they must contact DOC as they think they have found a replacement for 1080 poison. Refers to concerns about recent Chinese imports, toys with a high lead content in the paint and clothes with a high level of formaldehyde. Also refers to the row about using 1080 poison for possum extirmination as some people think it cruel.
