Ban Idaho Trapping/snaring

Using traps and snares on public land is unsafe for pets
Traps and snares are indiscriminate killers
Trapping and snares are legalized animal torture
A 72-hour trap-check policy for Idaho allows animals, both domestic and non domestic, to suffer for days
A trapped animal is traumatized, can break its leg, bleed profusely, may try to chew off it's leg to escape and will become dehydrated
Trappers don't have to indicate they have traps in an area
Idaho’s laws to ensure humane treatment of domestic animals don’t cover wild animals trapped
The wildlife welfare aspect is ignored completely- as if it doesn't exist
In the name of 'sport', trapping is being justified by hunters in the name of
local culture and history. The reality; this is a barbaric and
inhumane action that glorifies extreme torture and suffering
Trapping = Torture
At the polls in November 2012, Idahoans will vote on a constitutional amendment that would make hunting, fishing and trapping a right that cannot be banned
This amendment should not have trapping included with hunting and fishing, it should stand alone as an amendment
Lisa Kauffman, Idaho state director for the Humane Society of the United States, said she is against the Right to Hunt measure; trapping being the major cause
