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.

Ban the traps as I myself was caught in one. I was lucky I had boots on so it only managed to squeeze my toes. In the time it took to get it off my foot it hurt like hell so I know how the animals feel and they couldn't get themselves out of it like I did.Ban the traps as they are barbaric.

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?
