The death of a Bald Eagle on March 1 after ingesting rat poison was the latest heartbreaking reminder that we need to pass legislation now to limit the use of these poisons.
Anticoagulant rodenticides kill rodents by preventing blood from clotting normally. Native wildlife, including birds of prey, can become unintended victims when they eat prey that has consumed the bait.
Urge your state legislator to support An Act relative to pesticides today! We are overdue for passage of this critically-needed bill, which would better regulate the use of anticoagulant rodenticides and encourage safer pest control methods.
