Endangered Wildlife Threatened by Deadly Rat Poisons -- Take Action
In California alone poisonings and deaths have been documented in eagles, hawks, falcons, owls, bobcats, mountain lions, and endangered Pacific fishers and San Joaquin kit foxes. In fact, studies have documented second-generation anticoagulants in more than 70 percent of wildlife tested.
In an effort to protect wildlife from these needless poisonings, the Center for Biological Diversity has filed a formal notice of intent to sue the California Department of Pesticide Regulation. With safe and cost-effective alternatives available, there's no reason to leave the worst poisons on the market.
Listen to this story on KMUD and then take action to get super-toxic rat poisons off the shelves.
