Brickbat: But the Coyote Is Still Alive


Warner Brothers

A cyanide bomb planted by the U.S. Department of Agriculture sent a 14-year-old Idaho boy to the hospital and killed his dog. The devices are used to kill coyotes and other predators. The USDA is supposed to put signs up around them, but both the boy and the local sheriff say there were no signs around that bomb, which was planted near the boy's home.
