Success: Wolves Potentially Saved From Cruel and Horrific Death Due to Strychnine

Target: Patty Hajdu, Minister of Health, Canada

Goal: Support the idea of suspending the use of strychnine to kill wolves.

Every year Alberta sees more than a dozen wolves killed by strychnine poisoning. Government documents allegedly show that the province is failing to obey federal instructions regulating the use of the poison.

Wolves that come in contact with strychnine die a horrible death, enduring several seizures before they finally cease to breathe. It is almost impossible to control the poison in the ecosystem, because it spreads with the help of the dead bodies of its victims. In addition to the wolves, many other animals find a fatal end through this deadly toxin. With petitions like this one on ForceChange and the people supporting this cause, Health Canada will decide this spring on whether strychnine should be used to kill wolves.

The decision to eliminate strychnine as a method to kill wolves will help the wolf population to live in peace, and the environment to recover. Please sign this petition to thank Health Canada for considering ending the cruel poisoning of wolves.


Dear Honorable Mrs. Hajdu,

Thank you for reconsidering the use of strychnine to kill wolves.

The lives of dozens of wolves in Alberta are taken by this poison every year. Because of your willingness to review its use, these beautiful creatures may be saved from a horrible death.

Strychnine has a horrible impact on the environment, and kills not only wolves but every other animal that comes in contact with it. Taking a step forward to abolish this toxin is an encouraging move for a better future.

    POISONS must never be used to “control” animal populations. Non target animals, including pets, are too often affected. PLEASE USE NON LETHAL DETERRENTS ONLY.
