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.
