A necropsy has confirmed that an adult male fisher was killed after ingesting Methomyl, a highly toxic insecticide found at marijuana grow sites.
The fisher was found in late July after Humboldt County Sheriff’s deputies seized marijuana plants from a grow operation, on Six Rivers National Forest property in Willow Creek. Law enforcement are advising the public to not touch or handle items located in any marijuana grow sites, they say that the items in the site could potentially poison humans and pets, as some of the chemicals can travel through exposed skin.
The sheriff’s office ask that because of these dangerous toxins, if you find any evidence of illegal marijuana growing to leave the area immediately and notify local law enforcement.
