CA TO DUMP 1.5 TONS OF RAT POISON TO KILL MICE: TURNED OFF FARMERS VALLEY WATER TO SAVE TINY FISH

Posted on July 14, 2019


Fox: “A U.S. government agency is proposing using 1.5 tons of rat poison to limit the spread of an invasive rodent problem in the Farallon Islands, located 30 miles off the coast of San Francisco.”

“The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) was spearheading the proposal, which it claimed would eradicate tens of thousands of house mice, an invasive species harming the native ecosystem. FWS said the mice have attracted burrowing owls that have fed on the rodent population, insects and storm-petrels, a rare type of bird. The mice also have helped spread an invasive plant species, experts said.”

FWS: “Eradicating invasive mice is expected to benefit native seabirds, amphibians, terrestrial invertebrates, and plants and will help restore natural ecosystem processes on the islands.”

Burst Updates March 2010: “California’s Central Valley water was turned off to protect a tiny fish from becoming extinct. This resulted in economic devastation for the area. Farmers were unable to grow anything and unemployment raced to 40%.”
