California Residents: New Action Needed to Save Animals from Deadly Poisons!

California Residents: New Action Needed to Save Animals from Deadly Poisons!

This alert is no longer active, but here for reference. Animals still need your help.

Thanks to your support, California’s bill to ban toxic rodenticide poisons will be heard by the full Senate on August 19! The survival of California wild animals depends upon our collective voices. Please sign our letter to support AB 1788 before the Senate vote!

Mice and rats who ingest toxic rodenticides become mortally ill and die slow deaths by bleeding out from all their orifices. As they stagger around in their throes of dying, they often fall prey to owls, hawks, coyotes, and bobcats. These natural predators then become sick and die as well from a build-up of these deadly rodenticide poisons. Take action today to stop pest control operators from poisoning our state’s wild animals to death!

In a National Park Service study of bobcats living in the Santa Monica Mountains, all of the bobcats who died from mange also tested positive for exposure to rodenticides. Our allies at Wildlife Emergency Services have rescued one hundred sick bobcats like the one in the video below in the past few years, and eighteen tested positive for exposure to rodenticides. These toxins also harm threatened species like northern spotted owls, San Joaquin kit foxes, and Pacific fishers, and any other animals who consume poisoned rodents.
