    trapping

    One size says it is cruel and unnecessary, the other side says it is part of America's heritage, fun and profitable.


    "Each year, millions of furbearing animals are killed under the auspices of "nuisance wildlife control" and millions more are killed in the name of fashion. Indiscriminate body-crushing traps are used to capture or kill furbearing animals who are deemed a "nuisance" or who are valued only for the fur on their backs.
    Once an animal is caught she may remain in the trap for several days before starving or dying from exposure. Snares are a wire noose and can cause trapped animals to slowly strangle to death. With leghold traps, an animal my chew off his own paw to escape, only to die days later from the injury."


    Campaigns and Programs - Trapping and Fur Trade: Cruel and Unnecessary



    As we have inherited our great trapping heritage, so too have we inherited the responsibility of carrying out our wonderful sport in an ethical manner. Through education of today's trappers, our goal is to provide the information necessary for them to carry through on this responsibility.
    Our goal is also to provide the information necessary to enable the novice trapper to learn the techniques of constructing sets, humanely dispatching animals, fur handling, etc. This will be done primarily through the input of the many experienced trappers out there interested in the education of our young trappers.
    Our goal is to encourage today's trappers to join their national, and state trapping associations. By joining these organizations, we strengthen our numbers for battle against those who would take this great sport from us. We have many battles ahead in the legislative arena and these organizations need more than just our money. It's imperative that we show the public who we are and the good we are doing for the wildlife. Always keep in mind that we are the true protectors of wildlife and the wild places in which the animals live.

    Re: trapping

    If done, trapping needs to be humane. "Bear traps," etc. should not be legal for any purpose. Those things are dangerous and cruel.

    Re: trapping

    I don't get why people would want to trap in this day and age, it is cruel and only serves to feed power fantasies. Laws need to be created to criminalize trapping.

    Re: trapping

    Over forty views and only three responses to this thread. As I suspected this is largely a non issue with urban America. Out of sight out of mind I guess.

    Re: trapping



    I'm against the kind of traps shown above.

    Fully in favor of, and supportive of hunting.

    Trapping seems to be completely inhumane and torturous. Based on my extremely limited knowledge of it - I'd vote against it.

    Think those are bad these full body traps are even worse. You need a special tool to release them and peoples dogs are getting caught in them when they are out for walks. They just have to watch their pet die.

    I support humane trapping. Humane traps for bobcats. Productivity is never an excuse to make an animal suffer. Trapping small game can often be more fruitful than hunting small game, especially is you can't/don't have a hound. Depending on the area and season, trapping small game can be more productive than hunting big-game.

    Pretty much. I'm a born and bred city boy, so I can't say that the issue affects me one way or the other.

    However, given what I know on the subject, I can't say that I have a problem with trapping, IF it is done humanely.
