Pest control gone wrong is suspected cause of bird deaths

A PEST control operation gone wrong is suspected to be behind the poisoning death of hundreds of wild birds in the NSW central-west.

Up to 700 birds including corellas, galahs and cockatoos have been discovered dead along the Talbaragar River near Dubbo in the past two weeks.

A spokeswoman for Wildlife group WIRES told the Herald the birds likely fell victim to a chemical used to control insects and non-native pest birds such as starlings.
