The U.S. government says it is not responsible for any damages from a cyanide device planted by the Department of Agriculture that sent a 14-year-old Idaho boy to the hospital and killed his dog. The devices are used to kill coyotes and other predators. A lawsuit filed by the family says an Agriculture Department employ told law enforcement the device was placed in error on land managed by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management.
