Forest Service Fires Pesticide Whistleblower

Tuesday, October 11, 2005

The U.S. Forest Service has fired a 40-year employee after he filed a whistleblower complaint related to misuse of pesticides across several forests in Arizona and New Mexico. He said he was fired him because the Forest Service doesn't want controls over its pesticide use in public areas.

AP has the story, and there's more about pesticides at EWG's issue page.
