ACTION

gopher poisonA poisoning initiative is apparently underway at Starfire at the Villages, a condominium community in Scottsdale.

Poisons cause the animals who ingest them immense suffering. Victims experience convulsions, vomiting, internal bleeding, gradual cardiac collapse, and a variety of other reactions that result in horrific pain and a slow, agonizing death that can take days.

Please take a moment to write to Starfire at the Villages officials and ask them to remove the poison. If gopher control is insisted upon, then the community should employ any of the countless humane methods that keep unwanted animals away effectively. And please forward this message widely!

INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS

A poisoning initiative is apparently underway at Starfire at the Villages, a condominium community in Scottsdale, in a misguided attempt to control the local gopher population. PETA apprised community officials of the cruelty and dangers associated with the use of these toxic substances, but we have been told that the poisons will continue to be used. Now it’s your turn to speak up!

Poisons cause the animals who ingest them immense suffering. Victims experience convulsions, vomiting, internal bleeding, gradual cardiac collapse, and a variety of other reactions that result in horrific pain and a slow, agonizing death that can take days. And poisons pose a definitive risk to “nontarget” wildlife and companion animals who come into contact with the carcasses of animals who ingested the poison. 


Thank you for everything you do for animals!
