"Without government, who would put chemical booby-traps on your property?"

Seriously, what kind of fucking idiot would plant these around homes and pets?  Especially without any kind of warnings?
The family of a teenage boy sprayed by a cyanide explosive that killed their dog is outraged they weren’t told the device was planted near their home, reports East Idaho News.

Canyon Mansfield, 14, went on a walk Thursday afternoon with his family’s 3-year-old yellow Labrador, Casey, on a hill behind their Pocatello home on Buck Skin Road.

“I see this little pipe that looked like a sprinkler sticking out of the ground,” Canyon told EastIdahoNews.com. “I go over and touch it. Then it makes a pop sound and it spews orange gas everywhere.”

And, just to put the cherry on top,
The Mansfields said, as of Friday, nobody from the US Department of Agriculture has contacted them to apologize for what happened.
Of course not; being a Fed means never having to deal with the people you screw over(see 'BATFE and Gunwalker', for instance).

It would be illegal for any citizen to create, buy or use such a device. A lethal trap of any sort is illegal in every state. It is, on its face, malicious indifference to human life. Only the government can get away with breaking such a basic rule and do so with casual indifference to consequences.
