Owls that eat poisoned rats can be poisoned themselves. And its not limited to owls; hawks and other birds of prey are routinely poisoned and die as the result of eating rats that have ingested rat poisoning. Other birds can also be poisoned if insects

(Lovely photo of a barn own! I had the great privilege of working with a barn owl for about ten years. She was a joy to "show" at the zoo.)

Please find a more compassionate way of dealing with pests that will not have such widespread harmful effects on non-target animals. It is a tragedy that so many innocent birds and other animals are dying due to the poison that are being used in rat poisons

apparently nothing was learned from the disasters of DDT, organophosphates, Agent Orange (i could do a paragraph at least off the top of my head). ANY environmental contaminant concentrates on its way up the food chain. this is not a conjecture, but a long-established fact.

I don't believe in poison. It will continue to do damage long after we are gone. This summer they sprayed poison south of Boston to kill mosquitos. Then people were afraid when the bats started to fly into their houses to get away from the poison. They killed the Bats that ate the mosquitos and they didn't even have a funeral or an obituary for them. They should have let nature take it's course. The world is losing bats at a very fast rate because of our stupidity. I love bats. They are warm, they smell nice and musky and they don't wiggle in your hand. Save the Owls the Bats and all creatures on earth. Ban Poison

It should be clear that we cannot continue to use dangerous chemicals in our environment. It might immediately only affect one part that we see as peripheral, but it will come to us in time. We are just poisoning ourselves.
