Poison bait for Nuances Wildlife is legal in Florida but is highly discouraged because of Collateral damage. Secondary Consummation by scavengers becomes a major concern with the use of poison. However a Pesticide Licenses is required to legally use poison baits.
A little correction to the above statement. Poison Bait are LEGAL but MUST BE LABELED FOR THAT SPECIES. Here in lies the problem with using Poison baits. Rodents Baits are about the only species that have an EPA Label. Therefore while the State law Says it is legal it also says it is not legal to use poison on certain species because there are no EPA Labeled product. At the same time we all have a ton of poison under our kitchen sink that would work.

Out in the center part of Florida, Running Hog Dogs is a big sport. In addition to Good Old Boy BBQ, Larger Trophy Hogs are sold to Hunting Clubs. Green Horn Hunters from the City pay big bucks to shoot those Trophy Hogs in a staged hunt. The Green Horn doesn't know it is a remote control release on the cage they never see.
