Re: Resident sees dangers of rat poison to urban wildlife first-hand
These barn owls are beautiful creatures and its awful how many people use pesticides without thinking about it will affect other types of wildlife. In the Stonegate neighborhood, Laurie Seban and her group of Nature Bowl students put up an owl box in Whaleback Park a few years ago. These beautiful creatures fly in and out almost every night and we are able to hear their noisy screeches and hoots.
I think it’s terrible that these rodenticides are harming not only owls, but dogs also. Don’t people read up on chemicals before they spray them around in their yards? Isn’t that just common sense?
I hope Cayce Wallace convinces the City Council to stop the buying and selling of these harmful pesticides.
