Tell the Utah Wildlife Board Not to Extend the Trap-Check Requirement

This petition made change with 474 supporters!

On January 4, 2011, the Utah Wildlife Board will meet to discuss various proposals and issues. One of those actions will be a proposal to extend the trap-check requirement from once every 48 hours to once every four days -- or possibly even more.

The thought of a trapped animal needlessly suffering for up to four days is inhumane and just plain ridiculous. The Utah Environmental Congress plans to fight the proposition and hopes the public will help.

A trapped animal can suffer from exhaustion, weather exposure ailments -- such as frostbite or heat exhaustion -- shock, dehydration and eventually death. Some even chew their limbs off to escape, leading to blood loss and possible infection.

There is no need for an animal to remain in a trap for four whole days. Your voice can make a difference.

Sign the petition to tell the Utah Wildlife Board you object to the trap-check time extension.
