I'm a Wildlife and Fisheries Biology student at Clemson University and I can honestly say that the author of this piece of literature is extremely ignorant. Trapping has become essential in some parts of the country, especially in the Southeast where coyotes have become an invasive, nuisance species. Here, coyotes kill and out-compete with our natural predators such as the grey and red fox. They are also the cause of 75% of whitetail fawn fatalities. Trapping is the best way to control their populations. I use coil spring traps (foot traps) in my area to harvest coyotes. I have placed my hands in my traps several times and have never felt any pain. Any animal caught in the traps can be released without injury. Also, trapping season is scheduled during the late fall and winter so that none of the animals have young. And again, the author is extremely ignorant. Please become educated in the subject before you try to make anymore petitions.

I can honestly say how ashamed of my country people like you have made me. In the UK leg hold traps have been banned since the 50s,. They are banned in Europe, Ireland , Costa Rica , New Zealand, and more civilized countries. The US is becoming a more and more violent place. I am ashamed , and plan to move out. May anyone who would treat any living thing with such barbarism experience the same compassion. The thug state of Wisconsin kicked out all University Biologists from its DNR advisory,...

The thug state of Wisconsin kicked out all University Biologists from its DNR advisory, as it allowed trappers to infect their state parks, and make it a state unsafe for families.

For one day of the year, hunters like this need to have there traps used on them so they know what they are doing to the animals, and those who say animals do not have feelings need to have the traps used on a more....sensitive area

Why only one day a year?

Reason for only one day is this, with all the chaos and destruction that will take place on that one day, it will take a large amount of time to clean up. Seeing as how most humans are overly lazy in this day and age, one year is just to make sure the cleaning gets done., but if it done sooner, could always do 2 times a year :)

I totally agree with ya'. Not only those sadistic redneck hunters should get caught in their own traps, they should also have their puny packages whacked off, to prevent any more of their family inbreeding with their sisters and first cousins!

I cannot call the US Great any more, as long as these barbaric actions are allowed to continue. This administration has to be replaced by a Compassionate one, who Loves Mother Earth and ALL who live there.

Let us all hope that this is a very worth while cause, and that it isn't a no hope cause for these poor defenceless animals hey? Getting sick and tired of signing for these similar causes and nothing seems to come out of them unfortunately. Prove me wrong and lets hope there will be a long lasting solution to this barbaric and sadistic practice of snaring animals with these hideous tools of hate and torture, and punish those who produce or inflict these poor animals with them.

I can not say the exact location I would love to see trappers caught in all of these traps as it is way too graphic. I do not care if it is a man or woman, unless they are starving to death, hunting should be totally banned, and anyone that says they need to do so for actual food must show proof they need to do so, and new weapons or traps are not the way to give proof cause if a person has enough money to purchase weapons, and all the things used in what they call "hunting," then they have the money to purchase food.

Nadine, you've got my vote, sweetheart. <3 I totally agree that ALL hunting should be done away with forever. This is the 21st Century now, and if these yahoos want to get food, we have places called grocery stores, supermarkets, and health food stores, and if they don't have money to buy groceries, then they should get off their lazy tub-of-lard behinds and get themselves a job and earn their pay like everybody else. :)

What a Shame that a person would treat an animal harshly in that persons next life, maybe they'll get the same treatment!

I would happily sign your petition, however, I don't want to give "Causes" access to all my FB info. Is there another way to sign your petition?
