Mountain Lion's Death "Rousing" Call for Rat Poison Ban, Bloom Says

Thursday, May 2, 2019

May 2, 2019 -- The death in March of a mountain lion in the Santa Monica Mountains should serve as a rallying cry for stronger protections against rat poisons, Assemblymember Richard Bloom said Thursday.

The March 21 death the lion dubbed P-47 after ingesting rat poison comes as the Santa Monica lawmaker's bill -- AB 1788 -- banning "rodenticides" makes its way through the legislature.
