Tell the EPA to Protect Imperiled Prairie Dogs, Not Poison Them

From Defenders of Wildlife

Tell the EPA to spare prairie dogs and other wildlife from cruel and painful deaths -- and hold the EPA accountable for its role in speeding the decline of imperiled species. Rozol and Kaput-D are blood-thinning poisons that, when ingested, cause prairie dogs to slowly bleed to death a cruel and excruciating way to die.

INFORMATION

Black-tailed prairie dogs are currently being considered for protection under the Endangered Species Act. So why would the EPA even think about approving two new poisons to help kill prairie dogs in ten states across America?

Rozol and Kaput-D are blood-thinning poisons that, when ingested, cause prairie dogs to slowly bleed to death a cruel and excruciating way to die. These poisons also set off a chain reaction of secondary poisoning that can kill imperiled animals that are tied to prairie dogs on the food chain -- including black-footed ferrets, swift foxes, badgers, bald eagles, burrowing owls and ferruginous hawks.

We need your help to spare prairie dogs and other wildlife from a cruel and painful death -- and hold the EPA accountable for its role in speeding the decline of imperiled species.
