The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Division of Wildlife Services (USDA-Wildlife Services) has bizarre plans to airdrop dead mice attached to small parachutes around an Air Force base on Guam. Officials hope the mice, whose mouths will be stuffed with acetaminophen, will become entangled in the trees where invasive brown tree snakes reside and feed. Acetaminophen will then cause renal and liver failure in animals who take the bait, resulting in a slow, agonizing death that can take days or even weeks for snakes and others with slow metabolisms. Not only is this method exceedingly cruel, it is also indiscriminate, posing a danger to carnivores, scavengers, and aquatic life. USDA-Wildlife Services claims that this mass poisoning initiative is needed to keep the unwanted reptiles from being inadvertently transported to Hawaii, yet a brown tree snake has not been detected on those islands in 17 years! The drops are scheduled to occur in April or May, and your voice is needed.

Using the form HERE, please politely urge USDA-Wildlife Services officials to scrap this cruel and dangerous initiative. If brown tree snake control is insisted upon, then ask officials to find a more responsible plan. And please forward this message widely!


A drop of torment
A drop of pain.
In tears so silent,
Cold as rain
