I am old now and I deeply regret having participated in trapping, 70 yrs later. The visions of my inflicted agonies and inhumanity plague me still as few others of my sins do. To those who still trap, stop it. If you don't regret it yet, you will… grievously. To those who work to stop it, keep up the good fight and recall that we are still in an "awkward phase" in human development, but change is inevitable.

Regarding "justice for the unborn": I consider the term to be an alarmingly ignorant and inhuman one, betraying a stupefying lack of compassion… and grace.

Seabury, at least you are speaking out against this now. Too late for some animals but maybe will change a few minds out there. We learn from our mistakes. I'm going to borrow your comment if you don't mind, with credit to you. Other trappers should see this and I think you ARE trying to get the word out.

Trapping is so archaic! They need to make these traps illegal. If the low-lifes who set these traps want to catch an animal, be a man and legally hunt it. Trapping was obviously set up for those hunters who are "special needs' and cannot kill an animal with normal hunting practices. Any dumb ass can set a trap, it actually takes skill to "hunt" an animal.

I was going to join this petition, but then I saw how another human being was challenged by someone else here, because he admitted to having trapped animals before becoming aware of the atrocities he was involved in.. how dare you judge another human who joins you in good faith? This petition is not called oh come all yes trappers, we shall judge you... it should be a place to educate and eventually stop this utter crap! When you stand in Judgement, remember that Karma has a very big hand.

Jesse, I personally have applauded Seabury for his words of wisdom. It was just a signee that made those comments and I totally agree with you. We should all be so blessed to have seen this comment from Seabury because he is the voice of experience and I so appreciated what he said.

Trapping is so archaic, let's get out of the dark ages and realize animals feel pain just as you and I do. For those of you who continue the barbaric act of trapping, just try it once. Stick your arm or leg in a trap, if you enjoy it, by all means, keep on trapping. If it causes you pain, as it does the animal you are trapping, STOP IT! You are all a bunch of losers who deserve no place in society....
