This is so cruel and I do not know why our government does not ban this. How would human feel if they were trapped. They bleed like us, they have happiness and saddness and YES they feel pain just as much as we do. If you cannot understand that, you are not an animal lover.

Personally, if you don't live in the US, you shouldn't have any say as to what regulations US citizens have to abide by. Nothing personal, but how would you like it if I had a say in what laws you had to live by in your countries?

There comes a time when we humans have to stop and realize what we are really doing to the animals that share this world with us. Trapping is just plain cruel. There are people that have stepped on these kind of traps. They have said how painful it is. It's time to end this policy.

Does any person wearing fur ever think of how the animals are killed in this way, just so they can look good in fur? One coat can mean up to 100 animals killed like this. Maybe they should be shown these photos before they buy, then decide.

What else would you have us do with the rest of the animal after we've eaten it? To not use it's for for clothing is wasteful.

Why do you need to eat this animal? It's not good to eat! You have enough food that is farmed without catching wild animals.

Then how would we able to eat meat? We can't talk them to death or reason with them in order to die so that we can have a cheese burger. We use violence to kill them in order to eat their flesh. It's only natural.

Lisa, have you ever eaten any kind of meat? Those steaks, porkchops, chicken breasts and drumsticks didn't grow in those little white packages you find in your local grocery store. Did you learn anything in school about how Native Americans and the first settlers of the US had to hunt to eat? Oh, and how about before the Native Americans and settlers? Let's go back to biblical times....And during any of these times, do you think that everyone looked at an animal and said 'Mr. Cow, will you...

Um, maybe you should get back into your history books before you tell someone to shove a cheeseburger up their ass.

Wow Michelle! So wonderful to be transported back to settler times. There was I, thinking we'd developed synthetic fibres and protein substitutes. Thanks for pointing out so clearly how dependent we still are on our animals for food and clothing.

Does Lisa truly deserve your mockery for having strongly held views on vegetarianism and animal welfare? Your own viewpoint lacks credibility when held up against American Humane Society standards for the farming of animals for supplying meat to the human food chain. Assuming that your grocery store meat products are the result of trapping wild animals displays a worrying naivete,or simple ignorance. Perhaps it's just malice born of a misplaced sense of superiority?

Anyone who signs this petition should also never eat any fast food because those animals aren't exactly treated like royalty before they're slaughtered either. With chickens half the time they're housed in their own filth in cages. But this petition is flawed in its lack of clarification on the issue, to quote someone who posted earlier..
"This petition is seriously flawed. You do not mention the difference between LIVE TRAPS and LEG HOLD TRAPS. This petition if followed as written would...

"This petition is seriously flawed. You do not mention the difference between LIVE TRAPS and LEG HOLD TRAPS. This petition if followed as written would eliminate the use of live trapping of wild animals that need to be caught alive and relocated. Live traps are used to catch feral cats. If ALL traps were eliminated, all sorts of uses for live traps would be illegal and thus many animals would have to be put down because they could not be legally trapped alive to be relocated. This is what happens when petitions are not thoroughly researched or the ideas really understood. This kind of petition is thus worthless because the author did not do the research and really understand that SOME traps are quite positive in their use! It is not smart to simply run out and put up a petition when you do not really know the background on the issue."

Violence isn't natural? Have you ever seen a cat eat a mouse? How about a lion eating a gazelle? They're extremely violent, and tear the carcass to pieces. Cats play with mice before they eat them, then they only eat the front half, and leave the back to rot.

Easy Logan, simple answer, we do not need to eat meat. Scientific fact that we can get all we need by paying attention to what we eat and that doesn't HAVE TO include other living, sentient beings. We eat meat now in this day in age because we enjoy the taste, even though we have abused this privilege. I am vegetarian, why don't you try it? You may be healthier for it.

Michelle Powell, I would say the same thing to you as I said to Logan Waller. Everyone has a good idea of how animals get to our plates. That is not the issue here and is in no way a good analogy and justification for trapping. I don't care if Jesus, God or the Queen of England hunts and eats meat, it doesn't make it necessary or right in today's world just because we can do it and we like the taste of animal flesh. Vegan or vegetarian is really the way of the future and what needs to...

Vegan or vegetarian is really the way of the future and what needs to happen on this earth for the good of all. When I say all I mean humans and animals. Read up on factory farming, effects of raising and slaughtering animals for human consumption, health effects of consuming animal based diets versus a plant based diet, etc. Then give me a truly justifiable reason for humans to continue down this road.
