Lethal Control

Join us for a film screening and panel discussion on Federal Wildlife poisoning campaigns.

This is a FREE EVENT

Synopsis:

A University of Montana graduate student has recently produced a documentary chronicling a federal government agency’s use of a highly poisonous chemical that a Pocatello teen was exposed to and watched his dog die from.

Titled “Lethal Control,” graduate student Jamie Drysdale’s newest film tells the story of several people who have been exposed to the chemical sodium cyanide, including that of Canyon Mansfield, a Pocatello teenager who nearly two years ago triggered an M-44 predator control device that fatally poisoned his Labrador Retriever named Casey.

M-44s are spring-activated cylindrical tubes that are driven into the ground and covered with bait. When an animal bites down on the bait, the device disperses sodium cyanide into the animal’s mouth and sinus cavity and is one of many lethal tools in the arsenal of devices that Wildlife Services — an obscure division of the United States Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) agency — says it uses to protect livestock.

Showing on Thursday April 11 2019 7:00 PM (90 Minutes)

  • The Draft Is Coming
    by grrm on April 24, 2019 at 1:13 am

    Last year’s regular season was a nightmare for both the Giants and Jets, and thus a double nightmare for yours truly, who suffered through twice as many defeats every Sunday.   But November’s woes are April’s thrills, since that means both New York teams are picking high in this year’s NFL draft.  Gang Green has the […]

    Today’s the day.   You ready, Denver?   Meow Wolf has arrived! No, no, not the BIG Meow Wolf, the massive installation three times the size of Santa Fe’s House of Eternal Return that is going in downtown, just south of I-25 and a mile or so from Mile High.   That one will be mindblowing, but it’s […]
