Feds Reverse Course On Use Of Cyanide "Bombs" On Wildlife

Aug 16, 2019

The debate over the use of "cyanide bombs" to kill wildlife took a couple of turns of late. 

After the Oregon legislature passed a law banning their use, the federal EPA filed plans to continue the use of the M-44 devices in other states. 

The sharp reaction from wildlife protection groups was soon followed by the EPA announcing it would reexamine the use of cyanide in the M-44s.
