War on Wildlife Poisons Banner

A young female wolf, known as 314F, became a recent poison victim. Her killer remains at large.

After trekking 1,000 miles from Montana to Colorado, wolf 314F’s life ended violently. She swallowed Compound 1080, a deadly poison. It was illegally placed in northwestern Colorado, one of the deadliest areas on earth for wildlife.  Little wolf 314F was found because she sported a radio collar – unlike most animals killed by poisons, whose bodies go unfound.

Our wild landscapes should not be minefields of poison.

Compound 1080 causes horrific and excruciating deaths, taking as long as 15 traumatic hours. Death by 1080 involves cardiac failure, respiratory arrest, and severe prolonged convulsions. Little wolf 314F met with a cruel end. Compound 1080, manufactured by Tull Chemical of Alabama, should be banned. It’s too deadly to use.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is considering a ban on Compound 1080 and another even more common wildlife poison, sodium cyanide.

Learn more about Compound 1080, sodium cyanide and DRC-1339 and the impact they are having on our wildlife.
