Keeping the Wolf From the Door

Animal Damage Control (ADC), a controversial federal program initiated in the 1930s, has over 60 years of killing wild animals under its belt. Using leghold traps, ariel gunning, denning (killing coyote and fox pups still in their den) and sodium cyanide bait, ADC was responsible for the death of over 2.5 million wild animals in 1991—all, they say, to protect livestock.
