    USDA Cyanide traps are killing way more than intended

    http://www.foxnews.com/us/2017/03/21...aker-says.html

    As was their routine, 14-year-old Canyon Mansfield and his dog raced through the backyard of his Idaho home and up the top of a nearby hill to play. Minutes later, Canyon was knocked to the ground after a cyanide bomb set by the U.S. government detonated some 350 yards from the family's doorstep.
    Did anyone stop to think was this a good idea? It sounds like a horrible idea to me and I can't it is done.
    If what I say offends you then you really don't want to hear what I keep to myself.

    Sounds like a pretty stupid idea to me.

    the good congressman comes across as a bit of a Dick however
    Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.

    “There is a deeply anti-democratic undercurrent to much of the criticism of the new president, borne aloft by an assumption that democracy is too important to be left to the voters.”
