Rat poison is killing a lot more than rats. Anticoagulant rodenticides have spread throughout the food web in California forests, even in remote areas. How are these poisons getting into the ecosystem? On The Ecology Hour - Science Edition, Dr. Mourad Gabriel of the Integral Ecology Research Center talks with Tim Bray and Dr. Robert Spies about his investigation into poisoned Pacific Fishers and many other animals. That's Tuesday June 12 at 7:00 PM here on KZYX.
