What is our government doing about Reckitt Benckiser's and Spectrum Brands' refusal to comply with their directive to stop selling certain formulations of these super toxic rat poisons? Non-compliance should have consequences.

Gladly signed and noted. Thanks, Nancy!

This is what happens when you take cats and you kill them.build roads everywhere.cats maintain the rat population to a decent level.this is what happens. When u interfere with nature.

Bait stations are ESSENTIAL to prevent the death of non-target species, children and pets. Consumers need to be responsible. I'm sick of seeing dying squirrels and raccoons and finding dead birds.

If nature was allowed to control pests then the birds of prey, wild cats (not feral), snakes, coyotes et al would eat the rats and bait stations would not be necessary.

Seems like a lot of corporations are getting away with all kinds of violations under this administration and Congress! Neither of which is wildlife, animal or the public friendly! We need a change - please vote for Independent Rocky Anderson! No more party loyalty - they do not deserve it as they are certainly not loyal to us!

It is a duty of Government to protect the people it represents from danger. If these companies refuse to comply with the Law all necessary action should be taken against them.
