Every American needs to know that the Department of Agriculture is using these devices across America for predator control, yet they pose a significant danger if messed with!
How the government protects Americans from these devices has been called into question after a family dog in Pocatello, Idaho, was killed by a device used by the Department of Agriculture, the East Idaho News reported.
Canyon Mansfield, 14, was walking his dog when he noticed a pipe sticking out of the ground. He touched the pipe and as soon as he did, it released a deadly poison.
“I see this little pipe that looked like a sprinkler sticking out of the ground,” Mansfield told the newspaper. “I go over and touch it. Then it makes a pop sound and it spews orange gas everywhere.”
What Mansfield had messed with was one of many devices called an M-44. It is a cyanide distribution device that the government uses to deal with some of nature’s dangers. While the boy was able to get the substance off of himself quickly, his dog wasn’t so lucky. The yellow Labrador ended up dying from the poison because no one knew what it was right away.
The teen grabbed some snow and washed his eye out but then realized Casey was having problems.
“I look over and see him having a seizure,” Canyon said, holding back tears. “I ran over and he had these glassy eyes. He couldn’t see me, and he had this red stuff coming out of his mouth.”
Canyon ran back to his house where his mother was.
“He said, ‘Mom, Mom, there’s something wrong with Casey,’” Theresa Mansfield recalled. “We ran back outside and up the hill and by the time we got there, Casey had died.”
WITI reported that the family was unaware that M-44 devices has been placed near their property. Insanity! These devices have the potential to kill people.
“We didn’t know anything about it. No neighborhood notifications and our local authorities didn’t know anything about them,” Mark Mansfield, Canyon’s father, explained. “The sheriff deputies who went up there didn’t even know what a cyanide bomb was.”
