Ask Amazon to stop selling pro-violence / killing devices

Amazon is one of the biggest and most loved retailers in America and for them to support the sale of such horrific devices is unacceptable.

This product traps a raccoon's arm by squashing it. Raccoons often will try to escape by chewing off their own arms, failing most of the time and often dying of blood loss, thirst or starvation.

Glue boards are another painful way to die, similarly the victims die of exhaustion, thirst and starvation: http://www.amazon.com/Catchmaster-1872SD-Insect-Boards-4-Pack/dp/B001O7AYO0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1337931818&sr=8-1

Ideally I would like to see Amazon stopping to sell any violent items such as hunting gear and books, traps and poison.

      Stop selling killing devices. I served on the trapping committee against it in Wisconsin where they are expanding trapping into all public lands just as wildlife populations are crashing. DO NOT PROMOTE WILDLIFE KILLING!

      Is that not obvious. This is wrong and cruel.

      Traps are the forebear to the anti-personnel land mine. They maim and kill indiscriminately and are considered to be among the most torturous and inhumane of all the evils we visit upon other species. Amazon should be an example and not sell these medieval devices.

      Trapping is evil and sadistic. Amazon should not be selling this stuff.
