INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS
Poisoning is a horrific way to die. The last moments of life are cursed with dizziness, convulsions or excruciating pain. For the lucky few, death comes within minutes -- but far too often, it’s a slow and agonizing spiral that can take hours.
Each year, the Department of Agriculture's Wildlife Services kills more than 10,000 wild animals with highly toxic sodium cyanide and sodium monofluoroacetate (known as Compound 1080) -- and many of these poisonings occur on federal land.
You can help stop the use of these toxic chemicals on our wildlife. Act now to urge the Environmental Protection Agency to ban these deadly poisons. We'll deliver your message by the November 22nd deadline.
Thank you for everything you do for animals!
