A Force for Nature

Stop the use of cyanide bombs

Across the West, native species face excruciating deaths when they unsuspectingly set off sodium cyanide bombs, also known as M-44s. In the past several years alone, cyanide bombs killed hundreds of non-target animals, including bobcats, foxes, and even dogs. These bombs maim or kill any creature unlucky enough to trigger them, whether it’s a coyote, an endangered Mexican wolf, a family dog, or even an Idaho teenager.

We are calling on Congress to abolish these inhumane tools and cultivate an ethic of coexistence with native wildlife. Together, we can usher in a new era of humane, scientific, and effective wildlife management.

Please Note: Several Congressmembers have already become co-sponsors of HR 2471 and S 1301 (Canyon's Law) and are not included as part of this action. If you are having trouble submitting the form, it's possible that your senators or representative is among them. Please visit this page to review the latest list of co-sponsors.

Additional Note: Our system requires all fields to be completed in order to submit this form to members of Congress, including title and phone number. We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause and thank you for your support.
