Bernice Bjornson had this this to say about death camas in 1946:  “Death camas is well named. . . .  It is very poisonous and has caused the death of more than one kind of animal which has grazed upon it.  It is especially fatal to sheep.  Young children should be guarded against eating the bulb.  Older children should be taught to recognize it so that no mistakes may be made.”
