Around 10,000 pets die every year from drinking anti-freeze. It tastes sweet -- and shuts down animals' kidneys.
Maine state Rep Emily Cain (D-Orono) has a bill requiring anti-freeze sold in her state to include a bitter tasting substance to discourage animals from drinking it.
The lobby for the 260 companies that make anti-freeze say they'd go along with federal action. But they warn that Maine could become "an island" if they're the only state to make the requirement. (Portland Press Herald)
