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.

Seabury, for each animal you trapped and tortured 10 trapper, who stop trapping because of your courage - that's turning hell in heaven!

We need to co-exist with nature , not elimlnate it.There are other ways of dealing with these problems that do not involve torture and death innocent creatures. Besides , traps can be dangerous and cruel for our domestic animals.

Why are these retrogrades allowed to use the horribly maiming devices? All anmimals deserve to be free and not hunted, maimed and killled. What kind of sickness is this that some enjoy the suffering inflicted on animals- either wild or domestic- by traps? IT IS INHUMAN AND SADISTIC.

All trapping is inhumane, cruel, senseless, & totally unnecessary & should be banned & stopped Forever! No animal deserves to be treated cruelly or harmed for any reason! All animals serve a purpose & are important in general but also in their ecosystem which they keep in balance!

I can't think of anything more cruel and inhumane than trapping, no animal, wild or domestic should be subjected to this torture. It breaks my heart to even see these pictures. Please STOP all trapping!

Trapping is barbaric - therefor those who are involved are barbaric savages who do not belong in society. They are a danger to all those around them as they clearly have sick minds that cannot think far enough to realise that pain and agony is not confined to the human race. Let the punishment fit the crime and do it on public TV.
