Demand justice for Nyxo, the much-beloved dog owned by a leading conservation scientist that was fatally poisoned in a brutal act of intimidation.
The dog's owner has been investigating how highly toxic rat poisons threaten endangered wildlife such as the Pacific fisher and northern spotted owl. A necropsy revealed that the dog had been poisoned with meat laced with brodifacoum, the same controversial poison that was the subject of the research. In response, the Center for Biological Diversity announced a $2,500 reward for information on the brutal killing of Nyxo.
The evidence strongly suggests that this malicious poisoning is tied to that research. The use of violence to silence the conservation work of any scientist, researcher or citizen is deplorable.
This tragedy is yet another example of how the reckless use and sale of these poisons is ruining lives. Please take action now to demand the immediate prosecution and arrest of individuals associated with this heinous crime.
