  • Toxicokinetics and coagulopathy threshold of the rodenticide diphacinone in eastern screech‐owls (Megascops asio)

    In the United States, new regulations on second‐generation anticoagulant rodenticides will likely be offset by expanded use of first‐generation anticoagulant rodenticides. In the present study, eastern screech‐owls (Megascops asio) were fed 10 µg diphacinone/g wet weight food for 7 d, and recovery was monitored over a 21‐d postexposure period. By day 3 of exposure, diphacinone (DPN) was ...

  • Chlorophacinone residues in mammalian prey at a black‐tailed prairie dog colony

    Black‐tailed prairie dogs (BTPDs), Cynomys ludovicianus, are an important prey for raptors; therefore, the use of the rodenticide Rozol (0.005% chlorophacinone active ingredient) to control BTPDs raises concern for secondary poisonings resulting from the consumption of contaminated prey by raptors. We observed Rozol exposure and adverse effects to mammalian prey on 11 of 12 search days of the ...
