EPA Limits Most Toxic Rat Poisons in Homes But Leaves Wildlife at Risk

San Joaquin kit foxThe U.S. Environmental Protection Agency last week put new limits on some of the most dangerous rat poisons -- excellent news for the 10,000 children accidentally exposed to rat poison in their homes every year. But the decision allows continued use of the poisons for agricultural and other purposes, threatening thousands of animals a year when they consume poisoned rodents. Wildlife poisonings and deaths have been documented in eagles, hawks, falcons, owls, bobcats, mountain lions and endangered San Joaquin kit foxes.

The EPA's order comes after years of opposition from d-CON rat-poison manufacturer Reckitt Benckiser, which has fought the EPA to limit tamper-resistant packaging and keep super-toxic rat poisons on the shelves.

"I'm very relieved the EPA has taken this significant step to protect our families from accidental poisonings," said Jonathan Evans of the Center for Biological Diversity, which works to reduce the exposure of both people and wild animals to toxins. "But wildlife, too, need protection from these cruel, indiscriminate and deadly toxins. It's time we get them out of the wild."
