Every year, the government of Canada permits thousands of wild animals to die a painful, prolonged and torturous death by poisoning.
The Canadian government allows the deadly poisons—strychnine, sodium cyanide and Compound 1080—to be used in Alberta and Saskatchewan to kill wolves, bears and coyotes. But every year the widespread and poorly regulated use of these indiscriminate poisons result in the agonizing and painful deaths of not only these species, but also pet dogs, endangered species and other non-target animals.
But last year, the province of Alberta did not use these poisons. Now is the time to speak up and take action!
Our global petition helped to ensure that the toxins were not used last year. We are now at a crucial moment to urge the Canadian government to stop the use of poison to kill wolves and other wildlife in Alberta.
There is no question about it: a prolonged and painful death by poison is inhumane. There is sufficient scientific evidence to end the ineffective, unnecessary and cruel use of these lethal substances. These poisons have no place in modern wildlife policy.
Please send a message to the governments of Canada and Alberta, asking them to put an end to the cruel and unnecessary poisoning of wild animals.
