New Mexico Game and Fish vehicles encourage citizens to "TAKE A CHILD HUNTING, FISHING, OR TRAPPING." We feel that trapping is the sanctioned torture of animals. It is supported by a small fraction of the general public, and practiced by even fewer.To submit a child to the horror of animal trapping could cause permanent mental injury to them; children should never witness trapping, much less be encouraged by the our State Government to participate in it.

Governor, this offensive statement must be removed from state vehicles and replaced with one that encourages more positive activities for children than killing.
