This is what I have been led to believe.
I have always avoided these poisons for this reason. The much 
more deadly strychnine treated grain is much faster and the pocket 
gopher goes  or stays down and we have never had a pet poisoning 
with it. Nevertheless, I do fear it and use it only as a last ditch job. 
perhaps someday when the traffic is lower, I will tell you of my 
adventures in trapping gophers and the inferioroty complex they 
gave me.
