STOP POISONING WILDLIFE IN OUR STATE PARKS
Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) managers made the decision to poison over 2100 prairie dogs. This act was a direct violation of their own Black Tailed Prairie Dog Management Plan. The poison used to exterminate these prairie dogs is Fumitoxin, a phosphine gas that causes an excruciating death that lasts between 2 and 7 days as the animal slowing bleeds to death from the inside out. Demand that CPW stop destroying wildlife and habitat in our parks.
