The fact is that modern poisons don't translate like that. I used to own a pest control company. I remember the angst some had about poisoned rodents being eaten by other animals. It was shown by the Ag Dept to not be a concern.

Actually I picked up a 50 lb bobcat out of a tobacco barn that has been poisoned by eating poisoned rats and mice from the warfarin the owner put around in the barn. on another occasion I also picked up a whole bunch of hawks, owls, robins and other song birds that were falling out of trees all over a large area in peoples yard. I had them tested and investigated and found they were killed by an avicide that was put in a barn to get rid of starlings. The hawks and owls were killed by eating the dying and sick starlings and the song birds by eating the poisoned grain. Don't try to tell me that secondary poisoning is not an issue. The applicator was a very large exterminator company that is all over our state, I prosecuted them.
