Rat poison

I'm really bothered by the poison behind that building. Not for the fact that it's meant to kill the rats, I'm not against that. The building is in an industrial area surrounded by food chain distributors/warehouses so I can see how they would want to control an animal like a rat.

But how many other animals will be affected by this poison? Birds and predators? Untargeted animals eating the bait? Is this a common way to control rat problems?

How about the fact that this IS in an area surrounded by food chain distributors... is there a possibility of this contaminating any human food in any way?

I wonder if there is a better way?

A post full of questions, I'll have to look into the answers when I have time.
