Petition Closed

These traps do not reliably differentiate between the intended target and many other non-target animals which may be cruelly maimed or killed. People and pets are also at risk. Unlimited, profit-driven trapping can harm and deplete wildlife communities. The use of traps is NOT consistent with the "fair-chase" principles of ethical hunting.
