Sadie Par: Poisoning predators hurts us all
Wednesday, October 25, 2017

9:00 PM - 10:00 PM (Eastern Time)
Show in My Timezone
There is a toxic trio of poisons still being used to kill carnivores in Canada despite being banned from many other countries; strychnine, compound 1080 (sodium monoflouroacetate), and sodium cyanide.  These toxicants are indiscriminate killers, endangering everything on a shared landscape and posing a risk to wildlife, biodiversity, pets and even people.  These killing agents are are inhumane in that they cause extreme and prolonged suffering, and the fact of the matter is that better alternatives exist to manage wildlife responsibly and with compassion. It is beyond time for Canada to step-up and stop using these toxicants.  I will discuss the rationale behind attempting to ban these substances across the country as well as provide an outline of non-lethal alternatives that can prevent conflicts among people, livestock and carnivores.
