Endangered Species-Marijuana Poison
This June 17, 1997 photo taken by an automatic camera for the Hoopa Valley Fisher Project shows a fisher on a tracking plate device on the Hoopa Valley Tribe Reservation in Northern California. For the first time, federal biologists are reviewing whether pot gardens pose a threat to the survival of the wild animal. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is reviewing rat poisons linked to illegal pot gardens as a factor in whether to list West Coast fishers as an endangered species.
