Poison to be removed from Africa

Baraza relates that, in response to the 60 Minutes story on lion poisonings, the company responsible for Furadan is taking measures to remove it completely from Kenya, including a buy-back program to target old inventory.

It also appears that FMC will stop shipments to Tanzania and institute a buy-back there as well.

Living with Lions has more:

We have been told that FMC have now withdrawn Furadan from Africa in response to its misuse, and this will help slow the loss of lions. As a project we continue to do our best to improve the relationship between people and large predators, and address the complex issues surrounding lion-human conflict.

Excellent work by the Lion Guardians and everyone at Wildlife Direct!
