    That wasn't my point. You said there was no such thing as humane trapping. I disagreed and noted a humane method.

    Humane traps are fine.

    Leg hold traps are live capture traps. To assume that they are not humane is wrong. Modern foot traps (as you call them leghold) do not injure an animal. The wolves captured to restock Yellowstone were foot traps. Otter have been succesfully returned to many states with the help of foot traps. The US and Canada have signed agreements with the EU to eliminate inhumane traps. Those agreements changed what traps are out there for sale. You're living in the past if you think a foot trap is automatically bad.

    The reason we call them foot traps is because they are no longer designed to catch and animal by the leg. They are designed to catch an animal across the pad of the foot. The pad of the foot is tough and it is not going to be damaged so that is the optimum place for a trap to hold an animal with little pain.
