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.
I don't know you but thank you so much for signing our petition and for sharing it. Your words speak volumes to me and I so appreciate your honesty. We will do our best to beat this in our little county! Thank you so much.
seabury, i m sorry but i think its a bit too late in life to say your sorry dont you.?
It is NEVER too late to say one is sorry but that is my personal opinion! LOL And at least he learned and changed!
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.
Thank you for that, Seabury. I appreciate your courage to talk about the past and to change your mind. We need people like you. You can tell us what trapping really is.
beverly... how can it ever be too late to admit you made mistakes and say you are sorry?
Beverly Gannon no its not it is never too late to acknowledge our mistakes :D that is what Jesus come here to teach us what is not ? :D love to you
I certainly do not believe it is ever to late to be genuinely sorry for something you did in your youth .who the he'll are you to question Mr. Lyon heart felt apology.judge not lest yea be judged.
Seabury, for each animal you trapped and tortured 10 trapper, who stop trapping because of your courage - that's turning hell in heaven!
Where is polk County?
Debra, Polk County is in North Carolina
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.
Leghold traps don't discriminate.
I think barbaric is the word for them
Whether domestic or wild, all animals suffer the same agonies of pain and fear, when caught in these brutal and unforgiving traps. There's no excuse for any of it. Too many humans feel a *divine right* to occupy and use every bit of space on this planet, despite the fact that these animals were put here by nature/God for a reason. And whether or not we recognize that reason, or agree with it, the point is that we have no right to make the choice to torture and kill any sentient being,...

And whether or not we recognize that reason, or agree with it, the point is that we have no right to make the choice to torture and kill any sentient being, because we covet the space which they occupy, and obviously have occupied, before we humans decided we wanted it, and therefore we *deserve* it.
No, defenseless animal..No Animal should ever suffer this ,nor should a great Country such as ours should allow it.
NC has a poor record in managing its wildlife. Please go to RiseNC.org for more information. Follow the links to sign petitions against NC killing deer and banning Fox and Coyote Pens in NC. Every voice counts.
No puedo soportar ver sufrir a un animal, es algo que me destruye por dentro...............pobrecitos.
pauvre bete je suis degouter.
Do the traps come with reading instructions for anything or anybody who you do Not want to catch in the trap. Is there a recording that can sense it when children at play come around? Are we back in the Middle Ages?
