US Bans 'Cyanide Bombs' on Public Lands, Celebrating a Win for Wildlife Conservation

The United States has implemented a ban on "cyanide bombs" on public lands, following the example set by states like Oregon. These devices, also known as M-44s, are used by the US Department of Agriculture to eliminate predators and wildlife. The ban is considered a significant achievement for conservation efforts, as unintended harm to non-target animals and pets has been a concern. The Mansfield family's tragic incident in Idaho played a pivotal role in raising awareness and advocating for the ban. The Bureau of Land Management has taken the lead by announcing the cessation of M-44 use on public land, with hopes that other agencies will follow suit.

      Hi, walter lungayi. Thanks for posting a climate review on our platform. However, this review should not be directed to United States Department of State, but to the US President or the US Department of Agriculture (USDA). The idea behind our climate reviews is to make companies and organizations aware that they could (and should) do better. If enough people agree to your review, we will contact the company and ask them to join the climate dialogue. Read more here: https://www.wedonthavetime.org/our-community#guide

                        This ban on "cyanide bombs" in the United States is a significant milestone for wildlife conservation. It is a step towards protecting not only targeted predators but also non-target animals and pets from unintended harm. The Bureau of Land Management's decision sets an example for other agencies to follow, and it is hoped that this ban will inspire further action to protect our precious wildlife.
