Rodent poisoning project angers animal activists, March 19, 2003
To cope with an infestation on Ventura’s beachfront, dealy pellets are placed amonth the rocks. One group’s leader says she may sue.
Mary Cummins Director of Animal Advocates – a Los Angeles-based nonprofit group that rescues squirrels and other animals-spent much of Tuesday afternoon combing the beach for squirrel carcasses which she planned to take back to her rescue center to evaluate.
Cummins said she has been working with the city for months to bring down th erodent population and believes the poisoning program is unneccessary. She als said the action violates Environment Protection Agency and US Food and Drug Administration laws because the bait is too close to the ocean and available to other animals.
“It is not legal at this site,” Cummins said, carrying seven rotting squirrel carcasses in a plastic bag and bucket.
She said she would report the poisoning to various regulatory agencies and might file a lawsuit against the City.
