Stop Using Pindone Poison!

This is happening as we speak in Victoria!
Hundreds of rabbits will be slowly poisoned to death deliberately by councils in Melbourne. This bait (poisoned carrots) is also dangerous to dogs and cats and will kill countless native animals.
Pindone is an anticoagulant that kills by interfering with blood clotting, causing fatal haemorrhages. It takes around 10 to 14 days for rabbits to die following initial ingestion of pindone. During that time the animals bleed from the nose, mouth, eyes and anus, and pain from bleeding in internal organs, muscles and joints lasts for several days before they die. Because anticoagulant poisons take several days to kill, during which time they cause distress, disability and/or pain, they are considered inhumane.
We request that the Melton City Council seeks an alternative to this cruel method, and until then immediately halts its 'culling' program!
