HOW ANTICOAGULANT RODENTICIDE GOES UP THE FOOD CHAIN.

HOW ANTICOAGULANT RODENTICIDE GOES UP THE FOOD CHAIN.

 

(See more info. on Anticoagulant Rodenticides

on our side bar link labeled "Articles Members & Friends.")

Come to our program on rodenticides

Tue., Feb.16, 2016, 7:00PM   and see info below:

 

  

Some of this owl family died of anticoagulant rodenticide(AR) poisoning probably after eating a poisoned rodent.   Owls need to live so they can eat rodents and cull their numbers in a natural way.

This bobcat (ABOVE) died a year after this picture of mange and it had anticoagulant rodenticide in its blood.  It probably ate AR infected rodents.

This mt. lion is P-34.  She died soon after this picture and there were many different AR rodenticides in her blood.  While their main prey is deer they will eat coyote, racoon & bobcat and all of these animals eat rodents.  The poison goes up the food chain.   A hiker found her dead on a trail.

Small rodents eat anticoagulant rodenticides from this box but don't die instantaneously.  They live long enough for larger predators to eat them and therefore get the AR in their systems.

Come to our program:

How to Stop Rodenticide Poisoning

of our Wild Animals

Tue., Feb.16, 2016, 7:00PM      

Joel Schulman of Poison Free Malibu will be speaking on ways to save our wild animals from Rodenticide poisoning. Poison Free Malibu is a non-profit organization for educating the public and

government on the harm being done by rodenticides to wildlife. They have worked with ten cities in southern California to pass Resolutions opposing the use of anticoagulant rodenticides. We are encouraging our local state legislators to strengthen state-wide restrictions on rodenticides.

Rodent poisons are affecting 90% of our local carnivores – hawks, owls, bobcats, foxes, coyotes, mountain lions, etc. The talk will describe the sources of the poisons, how we do not need them, and what to do about eliminating them.

There will be socializing and refreshments.

 

Here is P-22, who could be named Mr. Hollywood, posing near the Hollywood sign in Griffith Park

 

Later he was captured for a checkup and they noticed he had mange and that he had anticoagulant rodenticide in his blood.  They managed to cure him.
