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!
We need to learn to co-exist with nature not eliminate it. There are other ways of dealing with these problems that do not involve torture and death for sentient creatures.
how can people do this 'making animals suffer and die this is heartless 'i like to set a trap for theses people ''trapping should not be allowed any where.

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.
