Here's What to Say

In your email, please point out:

Trapping is cruel and barbaric. The American Veterinary Medical Association, the American Animal Hospital Association, the World Veterinary Association, and the National Animal Control Association have declared that leghold traps are inhumane.
Traps don't care who they kill. Millions of "non-target" animals are also trapped, including companion animals and endangered or threatened species.
Animals frequently sustain severe injuries from being trapped. If not killed outright by the trap, animals can suffer physical trauma, dehydration, exposure to inclement weather, and predation by other animals.
Trapping should be banned statewide for anything other than rehabilitation or research.
Please Vote NO on the Cougar Rule Change!

The instructions were easy to follow. I don't know why people are looking for a petition. I think personal emails carry more clout, anyway. I sent an email to Darrel Weybright. Thanks, Cher.

"I am writing regarding the proposal to allow the use of snares and traps to kill mountain lions. Traps and snares are barbaric and indiscriminate. They can cause injury and death to companion animals and endangered species. The trauma and suffering endured by animals caught in traps includes painful injuries, panic, dehydration, exposure to elements, and possible predation from other animals. I recently read about a mountain lion’s paw being found in a trap. Deep scratches on a tree near the trap were evidence of the lion’s desperate attempts to free himself from the trap. The mountain lion tore or chewed his foot off in desperation and will most likely die an agonizing death. I urge you to please vote against the trapping proposal. Thank you.
