Regarding the rat poison in parks, I just came across this press release from 2014 that states NY rejected a ban on super-toxic rat poisons:

From the letter:

“In denying the petition, New York is assenting to the ongoing poisoning of eagles, hawks, owls and other wildlife, as well as pets and children. It is a sad day for public health and wildlife conservation in New York,” said Cynthia Palmer, director of pesticides science and regulation at American Bird Conservancy. “We are disappointed by the New York State General Counsel’s shortsighted decision in favor of ‘the procedural protections afforded’ to pesticide companies.”
