Trapping animals is extremely cruel and a barbaric throw back from the dark ages. Trapped animals are terrified, suffer enormous physical pain, extreme emotional stress, are subjected to the elements and predator attacks, become dehydrated.

I'm getting more and more sickened at having to look at heartbreaking images like the one accompanying this Action Alert. This is the 21st Century for heavens sake!

you can tell a lot about a person or society by the way it treats the beings it doesn't think it has to treat well
if we devalue anything we stand to lose everything
life has value beyond measure

How on earth can this still be legal. If you buy the ridiculous argument that hunting is a traditional sport (I won't get started on that), how in H*ll is this sportsmen like? What kind of talent or justification can be given for such a cowardly, physically and morally lazy, and horrifically cruel practice? Outlaw it! Thanks for posting.

Trapping is heinous animal cruelty! It is truly barbaric and it has no place in a civilized Nation! The U.S. has a moral obligation to be humane in its treatment of animals and that is why it is imperative that trapping be banned in our Nation just as it is in most other civilized countries around the world!

Clamp traps should be banned, excepting models designed for specific small vermin that won't significantly damage nontarget animals; frequently and properly checked cage traps are excellent ways of catching animals for relocation or scientific study. I go by the animals rule that if I'm not going to eat it and it's not harmful vermin, there's no point in killing it. Out of season hunts with cameras are also fine.

Barbaric!
Heart breaking picture!
I would like to "trap" all the people that do this and see how they feel. Maybe then they will understand how horrific it is for these poor animals to get caught with these traps that leave them mutilated, in pain, sometimes just laying there suffering for hours 'til their death!

No sentient being should ever again have to endure the excruciating pain, misery, suffering and death of a leg-hold trap, or any kind of barbaric trap again. It is inhumane and egregiously cruel.
Anyone who thinks that it is a good idea ought to try one on via their leg, arm or face and see what it feels like.
This barbaric trap, torture devise, needs to be done away with once and for all.
