Officials agree to stop use of predator-killing cyanide on Colorado lands

Posted: Updated:
UNDATED (AP) -

U.S. officials have agreed to stop using predator-killing cyanide traps on Colorado public lands amid pressure to ban the devices nationwide after one injured an Idaho teenager and killed his dog.

Court documents filed Monday show the U.S. Department of Agriculture has agreed to stop using "cyanide bombs" pending further study.

A judge must approve the agreement.

The traps are banned on federal lands in Idaho but remain in use elsewhere.
