You are actually taking the Warfarin (Coumadin) to thin the blood.  This 
product is used for people who have had heart attacks, strokes, and people 
with atrial fibrillation.  It is the blood thinning effects that kill the 
rodents.  I must agree with the other postings that stated be very cautious 
when using this product if there may be a chance of other animals getting 
their mouths on the dead rodent.  When ingested the Coumadin would then be 
absorbed into the blood stream of next animal up the food chain.

I do appreciate your jest regarding the subject.

Glen in Michigan   zone 5  where the snow is almost gone, but the forecast 
for tonight and tomorrow is 3 to 7 inches of the white stuff.
