    1080 safe in water supplies?

    All the media hype says it safe and poses no threat to us in our waterways, so why then this...

    1080 safe in water supplies?

    They used to say Roundup was safe


    But I don't know who "they" is, and if I did I wouldn't listen to them anyway, and I'm not sure if I ever have, or ever would, now I'm rambling, and making fuck all sense, must read less and hunt more.

    "They" must be environmental scientists who speak this gobeldy gook

    Effects of aquatic plants on the concentration of 1080 in water

    I't supposed to break down reasonably fast in water BUT if you put a lot into a small volume of water it's going to make a nasty soup for some time... It's all about how much 1080 in what volume of water over what time period and a bunch of other factors.

    So, if you eat the deer, that ate the plant that absorbed the 1080, do you get 1080 in you?

    Possible but it all needs to happen fast. Again it's a how much over what time etc
