In a recent news post it was reported that California mountain lions were reporting positive for exposure to rat poison. The reporter blamed this on urban humans trying to kill rats and it just has migrated up the food chain to the big cats in the forests. The real truth however is that the rat poison is being set out by Cannabis growers who are using the national forests as their personal gardens. As even the sierra club has begun admitting, these illegal growers are spreading out rat poison around their fields to keep squirrels and mice from damaging their all important crop. But since its cannabis, the fact they are the source now has to be suppressed in the name of political correctness. So the marijuana growers continue to destroy habitat and poison the cats (big and small) and someone else gets the blame. Very standard for this new progressive era.
