Council votes to do away with rodenticides
More and more communities around Los Angeles are moving to restrict rodenticide use in their residential and commercial communities. Last week the City of Camarillo adopted similar legislation. Now the City of Los Angeles should move to adopt the same language as these rat poisons are wrecking havoc on domestic pets and wildlife. In recent years, the cities of Moorpark, Simi Valley, Thousand Oaks, Westlake Village and Agoura Hills have formally opposed the purchase, sale and use of anticoagulant rodenticides, poisons known to endanger wildlife and pets. The City of Camarillo is doing the same.
