FILE - This March 16, 2017 file photo released by the Bannock County Sheriff's Office shows a cyanide device in Pocatello, Idaho. The cyanide device, called M-44, is spring-activated and shoots poison that is meant to kill predators. The device that doused a 14-year-old boy and killed his dog was placed on public land despite a document by federal officials stating they would avoid such areas to reduce the risk of exactly what happened. The U.S. Department of Agriculture in November said it would not put the M-44 devices on public land in Idaho. But the U.S. Bureau of Land Management says GPS coordinates put the device on BLM land near Pocatello. (Bannock County Sheriff's Office via AP, File)
