Poison Free

Poison kills everything. horribly.

In Canada, long-outdated policies continue to allow the use of three reckless and violent poisons to kill wildlife.

 

They are inhumane, with symptoms being extremely painful and prolonged before death.

 

They are indiscriminate killers that have claimed people and pets in addition to wildlife.

Photographs show the devastating effects of these poisons. Please note that some of the images are disturbing; viewer discretion is advised. See images.

Read this Open Letter to Canada's Minister of Health - signed by 50 experts.  

"To this day, I am haunted by the early signs of poisoning I have witnessed: twitching which was aggravated by mild external stimuli such as the mere noise of a door closing, to more advanced signs such as severe convulsions with the body arching backwards so violently I thought the animal’s spine would snap.

 

I then could not reach for the euthanizing solution fast enough to put them out of their misery."
