FWS calls for additional measures to protect three species from Rozol

In a draft biological opinion (BiOp) released this week, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) predicts adverse effects for three threatened or endangered species with continued use of the rodenticide Rozol to control black-tailed prairie dogs in 10 Great Plains states. However, the Service says use of Rozol would not likely jeopardize the continued existence of those three species, and has called on EPA to impose additional protective measures. Nine other threatened or endangered species would suffer no ill effects from continued use of the rodenticide, and six more would be protected by FWS's proscribed conservation measures, the Service says.
