Add bittering agents to antifreeze!

Additional Information

Many cats, dogs and wild animals die a horrible slow death each year from antifreeze poisoning - deliberate or otherwise. Animals find the taste of antifreeze sweet and palatable and thus they will often ingest the substance if it is made available, especially by mixing it with food. The results are catastrophic and often fatal.

A bittering agent introduced into commercially available antifreeze will greatly reduce the number of such poisonings.

There is currently no UK legislation forcing manufacturers to routinely add a bitterant to antifreeze. The UK government should draft, vote upon and enact legislation preventing the sale of any antifreeze products without a bitterant additive.
