Cyanide land mines are an unusual but serious threat to the animals is the U.S. The sweet smell of these devices is used to lure animals closer, which triggers the bombs to blast out cyanide powder – a compound that is highly poisonous and typically leads to a death. The use of the bombs is a part of The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Wildlife Services Predator program, which in short, is set up to benefit corporate farmers and livestock owners, according to a petition on Care2. The M-44 cyanide land mines are a cruel and senseless way to eliminate unwanted animals – and, in addition to that, one financed by taxpayers’ money.

As you can imagine, the bombs do not end up killing only wild animals. They can be triggered by dogs playing around on their walks, or even by children – basically, any moving object. Recently, Casey, a Labrador from Idaho fell prey to these bombs. Fortunately, the fourteen-year-old boy who was accompanying Casey on his walk was not poisoned. Casey’s death, however, is unpardonable. This terrible story has its equally tragic precedents – the deaths of two dogs in Wyoming and of a wolf in Oregon.

The Wildlife Services is not as efficient at protecting actual wildlife, as the name would and should suggest. Through its effort, Wildlife Services kills not only predators but also other animals, its aim being mainly to protect livestock and game animals (before it is actually time for them to be killed, that is). The program’s effect is approximately 1.5 million animal deaths per year.

The use of cyanide traps is an indefensible and lethal waste of money and has to be stopped. Click here to sign a petition to the U.S. Department of Agriculture to immediately ban the use of M-44 cyanide land mines.

Hello Everyone, i am DAVID HILL MILLA now living in FLORIDA. I am SINGLE DAD, at the moment, two children and I was struck on the financial situation and need to refinance and pay for my son\'s medical bills and school fees. I tried looking for different loan lending companies and private corporation but never got a loan from them, and most banks reduced their credit. But as God would have it, I was introduced to the private loan lender JULIA NAVARO CEO NAVARO LOAN COMPANY and I got the loan amount ($553,760 USD), and today I am a business owner, and the kids are doing well at the moment. So, my dear friends, if you need to contact referring to all the companies that provide the loan at low interest rate of 2% and better repayment plans and schedules, please contact (JULIA NAVARO) at [email protected] I\'m so happy now, and I decided to let people know more about it, she offers all kinds of loans to individuals and company, and I want God to bless her. You can contact the company via e-mail ([email protected])....

TRUSTED LENDER ([email protected])
My name is Michael Lee a citizen of Illinois, USA. i have been scammed by 7 different Internet international lender, they all promise to give me a loan after making me pay several fees which yield nothing and amounted to no positive result. i lost my hard earn money and it was a total of 23930USD. One day as i was browsing through the internet with tears on my eye i came across a testimony of man who was also scammed and eventually got linked to a legit loan company called MARTINEZ LEXIE LOAN COMPANY where he finally got his loan, so i decided to contact the same loan company and then told them my story on how i have been scammed by 7 different lenders who did nothing but to course me more pain. I explain to the company by mail and all they told me was to cry no more because i will get my loan in their company and also i have made the right choice of contacting them. I filled the loan application form and proceeded with all that was requested of me and to my greatest surprise my loan was granted to me without further delay and here i am today happy because Martinez Lexie Loan Company HAS GIVEN ME A REASON TO LIVE, so i made a vow to my self that i will keep testifying on the internet on how i got my loan. You are to contact this GODSENT LENDER via Email: [email protected] OR Text +18168926958

HOW EDWARD LOAN COMPANY GRANTED ME A BUSINESS LOAN!!! {https://jonesloanfinance.wixsite.com/loan}

Hello everyone, I am Oliver Johnson Moore from Zurich Switzerland and want to use this medium to express gratitude to EDWARD JONES for fulfilling his promise by granting me a loan, i was stuck in a financial situation and needed to refinance and pay my bills as well as start up a Business. I tried seeking for loans from various loan firms both private and corporate organisations but never succeeded and most banks declined my credit request. But as God would have it, i was introduced by a friend named Lisa Rice to EDWARD JONES LOAN COMPANY and undergone the due process of obtaining a loan from the company, to my greatest surprise within 28hrs just like my friend Lisa, i was also granted a loan of $387,000.00; So my advise to everyone who desires a loan, "if you must contact any firm with reference to securing a loan online with low interest rate of 2% and better repayment plans/schedule, please contact EDWARD JONES LOAN COMPANY. Besides, he doesn\'t know that am doing this but due to the joy in me, i\'m so happy and wish to let people know more about this great company whom truly give out loans, it is my prayer that GOD should bless them more as they put smiles on peoples faces.
