Trapping must stop immediately because it is an example of extreme animal cruelty and abuse.

1. There are a number of photographs on the internet of wolf trappers teasing living wolves caught foothold traps before the suffering and frightened animal is either clubbed to death or shot. Such cruelty and exhibitionism must be stopped.

2. Many wolf trappers do not want to check traps every three or four hours and want the legal time extended to 72 hours. This means a trapped wolf will die...

3. Trapping is indiscriminate. Eagles, bobcats, wolverines, swift foxes and pet dogs have been caught in traps set for wolves during the 2012-13 hunting season in states where wolf culls are legal.

4. Ohe of the most obscene form of animal cruelty is baiting traps with wolf carcasses so members its family will be attracted to the scent as they search for their lost relative and meet a cruel death themselves.

Because traps are indiscriminate and have no place in this world. If I could personally destroy every trap in the woods I would.

It is important to me because it is the nature of life's cycle to procreate and live freely. It is man's gendre to trap and kill in a cruel and selfish manner. THIS MUST STOP ASAP.

This is so damned cruel. How anyone could do this and still sleep at night is beyond me. To cause such a dreadful death to any creature is an abomination and should stop immediately, why wait for 2020 ? stop it now. Animal fur should stay on the animal, we do not live in caves and hunt for food and clothing, we are able to go shopping and buy our coats. However animals can not shop and need their own coats that they were born with. All clothing made with real fur should be banned and those...

the long agony that these trapped animals must face is unconscionable. i am forever amazed at the arrogance of some human beings and their misguided belief that they are more important and powerful than any other species on earth.please put an end to this barbaric,inhumane practice of trapping.and try to educate those who have been so indoctrinated in the old ways of trapping that they have not acknowledged the horror and cruelty of it all. banning the practice of using traps...

Trapping harms many animals in addition to the target species. It is inhumane, barbaric and must be stopped now. When will we ever learn that animals deserve more than the agony of trapping, a cruel, and abusive practice.

It is simply inhumane. PERIOD!

Robyn Laura Cox Jorgensen

It causes painful suffering and eventually death to anything that ends up in the trap. Wildlife, domestic animals, children and anyone who has the misfortune to come across them. Nothing on this earth deserves to be trapped!

What can anyone possibly say that justifies such cruel treatment of animals who are simply trying to live?

Because trapping is extremely cruel and unnecessary. We are better than that.
