New Bait?

I was speaking with a Bell Labs' sales representative. Bell Labs makes a non-peanut butter based bait for rodents called "Provoke." He said that he has seen it lure raccoons. In addition, he hasn't seen it lure house cats. So I am putting out a call to anyone that has information on the effectiveness of Provoke to lure raccoons.

For if it is true, it would be good news as new baits are always valuable.

Review Article on Andrew Linzey's Why Animal Suffering Matters

Those of you who have followed my career are well aware of my long standing critique of Andrew Linzey's understanding of Christianity and animals. I have just published a review article of his latest book Why Animal Suffering Matters in Perspectives in Biology and Medicine. I welcome your comments.
