Petition Implement a complete ban on the sale of rodenticide poison
This is a request to ban the sale of rodenticide from all shops, including online retailers. It's a dangerous toxin & should not be readily accessible. The damage is far-reaching & devastating for wildlife - it's a pollutant, indiscriminate & the long-term effects are not fully known.
Rodenticide poison is cruel, indiscriminate, ineffective & has devastating ramifications for the environment. The UK is in the lowest 10% globally in terms of biodiversity & having such toxic substances on sale contributes to the harm being done to the natural world & delicate ecosystems. Having this poison readily available leads to the dangerous misconception that it's inherently safe. There are often multiple victims, with many companion animals & endangered species being among those killed.
