EPA reverses approval for 'cyanide bombs' used to kill wildlife

EPA reverses approval for 'cyanide bombs' used to kill wildlife In a surprising reversal, the Environmental Protection Agency announced on Thursday it is walking back a recent decision to reauthorize use of M-44s, also known as "cyanide bombs," to kill coyotes, foxes, and other wild animals. M-44s are spring-loaded traps filled with sodium cyanide, which Wildlife Services officials use when they kill animals for ranchers and farmers. Last year, the federal agency killed more than 1.5 million animals, with about 6,500 dying because of M-44s. These traps have also killed pets and injured people who stumbled upon them.

Justin McVey of the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission told News ABC 13: 'We have more bears. Our population has been increasing.'

Wildlife officials say a possible cause for the injured bears may be human interaction.

McVey told News ABC 13: 'Bears get hit by cars all the time, and unfortunately bears with three legs is not uncommon. They adapt very well, and they can live a successful life, even with just three legs.'

Advocacy group Help Asheville Bears has a different theory.

In a Facebook post, the group wrote: 'With the 9 bears that we have confirmed are missing part of a front limb but having no other noticeable injuries in the counties of Buncombe and Henderson, we at Help Asheville Bears still do not accept the theory that the causes are most likely auto accidents involving bears (implying also that the bear then walks off and loses their front leg).'

They report receiving four reports of bear traps in the area and are encouraging residents to notify the Law Enforcement and Wildlife.

In a poster updated on August 24, Help Asheville Bears outlines all the confirmed incidents, including those of mother bears and cubs.

Still, wildlife officials say the cause is most likely car accidents and the bears are relatively fine after the ordeal.

'They will generally kind of move away from people, get to a quiet place, rest and recuperate. Generally those wounds will heal on their own, and then they're able to go out and live a normal life,' McVey told ABC 13 News.

Help Asheville Bears is offering a $10,000 reward for anyone with information that could lead to the identification and conviction of the suspects committing the alleged acts.
