And another example of how our bloated govt agencies are out of control...

Boy sprayed, dog killed by cyanide planted by U.S. Department of Agriculture

POCATELLO Idaho – The family of a teenage boy sprayed by a cyanide explosive that killed their dog is outraged they weren’t told the device was planted near their home, the East Idaho News reports.

Canyon Mansfield, 14, went on a walk Thursday afternoon with his family’s 3-year-old yellow Labrador, Casey, on a hill behind their Pocatello home on Buck Skin Road.

“I see this little pipe that looked like a sprinkler sticking out of the ground,” Canyon told “I go over and touch it. Then it makes a pop sound and it spews orange gas everywhere.”

The Bannock County Sheriff’s Office is investigating an incident where a predator control device called “cyanide bomb or cyanide trap” detonated killing a family dog and injuring a teen.

The orange gas was cyanide, and it sprayed into Canyon’s left eye and on his clothing.

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.”

1. Feels like a foolish way to kill predators.

Frankly surprised there aren't more accidents like this.
