California: Ban Cruel Rodenticides by Urging Governor Newsom to Sign AB 1788

California: Ban Cruel Rodenticides by Urging Governor Newsom to Sign AB 1788

Governor Gavin Newsom is poised to sign AB 1788, the bill to ban rodenticides statewide. These deadly poisons are still actively used by "pest control" operators, but this legislation will protect countless animals, including mice, owls, hawks, skunks, raccoons, coyotes, rats, bobcats, and mountain lions, from painful, untimely deaths.

Now is the time to stop poisoning wild animals who are also desperately struggling to survive the massive wildfires currently raging across the state.

Just as AB 1788 landed on Newsom's desk, bobcat B-372 and mountain lion P-76 both died horrible deaths from uncontrolled bleeding due to rodenticide poisons. News of their deaths is even more reason for him to sign AB 1788 into law.

Los Angeles, home of celebrity mountain lion P-22, is one of the worst possible places to allow uncontrolled rodenticide use. Without treatment for rodenticide poisoning in 2014, P-22 would have perished after much suffering.
