Trapping: Time to evolve past cruel practice
Trappers don�t care if animals are tortured and maimed and terrorized for who knows how long before they are �mercifully �bludgeoned or suffocated or shot.
Trappers don�t consider that there are 7 billion human beings on this planet and that some of us believe setting multiple traps to kill wildlife is ludicrous.
Trappers mutilate and kill indiscriminately; they have no idea what animal will have the misfortune to experience their �craft.�
Trappers disrespect our wishes to protect and preserve our rarest species; their target could be any one of them.
Trappers teach our children and future generations that it is acceptable to torture and terrorize animals.
Trappers are selfish; they turn our public lands into killing fields.
Trappers will someday be only a history in our evolutionary past.
