Pigeon Poison Avitrol is a very Deadly and Toxic Pigeon Poison used by only a few Las Vegas, Nevada pest control companies. Out of the over 300+ pest control companies in the Las Vegas area, only about 50 are known to use Pigeon Poison Avitrol.
Regardless of your opinion on the cruelty aspect of the poisoning, what needs to be given consideration are other possible threats to our community.
Avitrol claims there are “little or no reported incidents of secondary ingestion” The problem with their statement is the communities that are being poisoned are unaware they are being subjected to the poison. Therefore when there is an instance of sickness or death, the victims would never think to consider Avitrol as the culprit.
Avicides like Avitrol are acutely toxic and cause birds and other animals to suffer immensely. Avitrol attacks and impairs birds' nervous systems, causing birds who ingest the poison to become disoriented, exhibit erratic flight and tremors, and suffer violent convulsions for hours before they finally succumb to the effects of the toxin.
VERY happy to sign your petition! I'm from San Francisco but now live in Denver where there is still a "If you don't like it, kill it" mentality. I've witnessed the horrors of Avitrol poisoning due to all of the pigeons I've rescued over the years and it's so sad to watch as I try to give them comfort before they die, often too late to get to a vet. Equally revered and reviled, they're just trying to live like the rest of us and they or any other living being does not deserve this especially when there are so many humane alternatives. Just look at the European methods, they do work. Thanks for looking at the big picture in all of this.
