Baneberry is a small perennial that grows in deep woods, north slopes and in meadows from Southern California up into Alaska, Alberta and across to New Mexico. In small doses Baneberry was used by Native Americans for all that ails you, in moderate doses it will kill you. Small animals and birds seem to be able to eat the berries with no problems. Cattle, horses and sheep can also eat with no problems but it must have a bitter twang as they'll not favor it if anything else is available.
