The Ashmore Park – Rumour Of Rat Poison Denied!

I received an enquiry recently from a member of the public, who told me that there was “a rumour doing the rounds”
that the City Council was using rat poison on The Ashmore Park.

I checked the allegation out and this is what I have been told by the Public Realm team.

“We have not been asked to bait Ashmore Park; unless we know where a nest is,
it would be difficult to bait and as we can’t bait in the open because of the risk to public and non target species.”

Hopefully this information will help dismiss the rumour and allegation.
