Government Planted “Cyanide Bomb” Accidentally Injures Idaho Teenager and Kills His Dog

If there was a problem with predatory animals in your community, such as coyotes, foxes, and cougars; what do you think would be the best solution? Hiring hunters to exterminate them? Setting traps to catch the animals and release them elsewhere?

Well apparently in Idaho, the Wildlife Service has been planting spring activated “cyanide bombs” in rural areas. Recently, one of these devices detonated and accidentally injured a teenage boy.

14-year-old Canyon Mansfield was playing with his dog in Bannock County, Idaho, when he noticed what he thought was a sprinkler head in the ground. When he touched it, it burst into an orange cloud of cyanide, which injured him and killed his dog. His father tried to revive the animal but to no avail. The boy and his father, as well as several first responders, had to be decontaminated after the incident.

The Wildlife Service says that they only plant these devices (which are called M44s) with the permission of property owners and land managers, and that they are always accompanied by warning signs. Bannock County Sheriff Lorin Nielsen stated that he wasn’t told about the placement of these devices. “I’ve been a sheriff here for 20 years and worked for the office for 39 years, and I’ve never heard of leaving around a device that emits poisonous gas.”

This isn’t the first time that this sort of thing has happened. In 2003, a man from Utah was poisoned by an M44 when he mistook it for a survey marker, and it killed another Utah man’s dog in 2006. Environmentalists have long criticized the M44, because it’s indiscriminate, and routinely kills the wrong animals.

  • Sounds like a IND to me, an improvised non-explosive device, which might be just as effective as an IED at much lower cost, given that unwarned humans seem to be common victims thereof.

    Gas-bomb “booby traps” like this are the equivalent of anti-personnel mines which, supposedly, are banned by the Ottawa Treaty for good reason: these things don’t discriminate between good and bad. The USA is not a party to the Ottawa Treaty. Not that it would matter…just ask any Native American about Uncle Scam’s record of observing treaties.

    The people who think of this shit are complete idiots. What the fuck did they think would happen when they left a poison booby trap laying around? Of course they are going to get the wrong target from time to time.
    This was inevitable. It was a risk that they should have been aware of before they even started this. And it should have been enough to discourage them from doing it.
    These people need to be sued as individuals. Otherwise, we will be paying for our own damages, and that’s ridiculous.

      If someone accidentally triggers one of these things and gets killed I would support charges of capital murder against the people who planted the device. In the case reported in the article I would also support the same charge against the property owner who allowed the device on his property. To say nothing of civil lawsuits for wrongful death or injury.

        I consider it capital murder already, since the bastards killed an innocent dog. Every single one of them needs to be sued individually for everything the lawyer can possibly think of. There is NO excuse for this one.

        There would be no need whatsoever, to utilize not one second, of the kangaroo courts time or having to drag the perps in to court!


      “These people need to be sued as individuals.” No, they need to be put down.. Wake up people.

    So, after this happened. did the govt dinks go and collect all the others that are laying around?? Prolly not, that would require THOUGHT, and we all know how that go’s.

  • endofwatchersbegan1/28/2011

    Somebody needs to detonate one on whoever decided they could use them to begin with. Make America SAFE again.

  • we worship cattle

    The only predators are the welfare ranchers and the sociopathic “Wildlife Service” who’s creed is to kill kill kill as they cater to man the predator.

  • Pat Taylor ╚(ಠ_ಠ)=┐

    This is outright bull crap!

    When in example, farmers that utilize poison as a means of destructive varmint control – Federal and State laws mandates that the applied poison must not be accessible by unintended wildlife, as well as domestic animals, as well as to not come into contact with waters or streams.

    Plain and simple, this is a sign of absolute disregard for people as well as domestic animals – this is indiscriminate killing – people … Say NO if ever asked to set any form of an indiscriminate killing device.
