‘Cyanide bombs’ in Colorado: Government agrees to stop using devices investigated by FOX31 Problem Solvers
DENVER -- An acting U.S. Attorney in Colorado on Monday signed off on a stay that orders Colorado Wildlife Services in Lakewood, a division of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, to halt the use of poison-ejecting devices M-44s. A judge ruled so-called “cyanide bombs” can no longer be used on public lands in Colorado to control predator coyotes until the federal government studies the environmental impacts of the sodium cyanide they launch when triggered.
