Help Stop Cyanide Bombs From Killing Wildlife

There's no place for M-44s to be used on wildlife, especially by the government on public land.

Hi Everyaction,

The government program known as Wildlife Services refuses to stop using cyanide bombs to kill wildlife.

Small metal cylinders called M-44s lure foxes, bears, coyotes and other animals with a sweet scent — then spray these animals with poison.

This cruel killing of wildlife on public lands must end.

Please help with a gift to the Saving Life on Earth Fund today.

Last year more than 7,500 creatures were doomed to a slow, agonizing death caused by M-44s.

The cyanide bombs Wildlife Services uses even wipe out wildlife by mistake. More than 200 animals were killed unintentionally by M-44s last year, including a black bear, five dogs and dozens of foxes.

It's long past time for the federal government to get out of the business of killing wildlife — especially by using barbaric devices that also threaten pets and people.

But there is hope. A new bill in Congress would ban the use of M-44s on federal property and go a long way toward ending the indiscriminate killing that takes place at the hands of Wildlife Services.

We've been battling Wildlife Services for years — and winning.

We gained a ban on traps and poisons in several wildlife areas in Northern California.

We forced Wildlife Services to curb its killing of beavers, bears and other wildlife across Washington state.

And we helped secure strict limits on how and where the program can kill wolves in Idaho — and banned it from using M-44s statewide.

We can't tolerate the purposeful, mass killing of wild creatures. And there's no justification for ever using M-44s.

We won't stop fighting to get them out of Wildlife Services' arsenal — and you can help.

Please give today to the Saving Life on Earth Fund.

For the wild,
