Snares and Trapping

PETITION: Ban Leg Hold, Coil Spring, Conibear, and Snare traps in the U.S..

TARGET: U.S. House of Representatives, Ryan Zinke - Secretary of the Interior, Daniel Ashe - Director U.S. Wildlife Services

The undersigned list of compassionate people want to see trapping in America abolished. We want to see the use and sale of these traps made illegal. Not only are traps cruel, they are also completely indiscriminate. When a trapper sets out a trap they have absolutely no idea what they are going to catch. Often times, endangered species and pets step in these traps and are never reported. When an animal steps on a trap, the traps jaws slam shut, clamping down on the animals limbs. As the animal struggles to free itself, the vise gets tighter and cuts into its flesh. Many times trapped animals become so desperate to escape the torturous trap that they actually chew off their own paw in order to escape.

Why is slamming any random animals appendage into a trap, leaving it to die of thirst or starvation (most laws don't require checking traps daily), or drowning it supported? These traps are illegal in 88 other countries, and should be banned in America too. Most civilized countries around the world have already banned trapping - time for the United States of America to adopt a no-trapping policy.
