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.

Every animal is a creation of God and should receive love, care and RESPECT and be able to live in an environment that is best suited to their needs - away from greedy, thoughtless, selfish, cruel humans. God bless ALL animals! xo xo xo xo xo xo.

Out walking tonight around 8 PM and I hear howling and barking and noticed flash lights in the woods, I believe they were "coon hunting" another barbaric act they can do away with! Nothing better to do on a Saturday night?

If you stop the wars and get the Vets home by making a Happening in Cleveland at the First Energy newly named NFL Football Stadium, bigger than Woodstock ever dreamed of -- out of this world and take care of suicides, prisons, homelessness, hunger and general degradation of humanity by humanity --- maybe we can stop the wars and have a PEACE ACTION.
