Leg-hold traps are very cruel to animals and the suffering they go threw as they slowly freeze to death, bleed out and chew there own legs off is cruelty at it worst. To then wander off to freeze to death, I ask you ..is that fair? ..What kind of sick world do we live in? Trapping animals, just so the rich can wear dead animals around there necks and on their backs ..shame on us humans. We are all GOD’s children, man and beastie together.

On a nearby popular path, some idiot put coyote traps. My dog (years ago) and several others got caught. My dog, luckily, only had toes pinched. One small dog was killed. I called the state ranger to complain and he said SUCH TRAPS ON SUCH TRAILS WERE LEGAL. WHAT?!!! He, in fact, wanted to come get the trap to return to the trapper -- each trap had an ID # on it. I told him (smile here) I'd recycled it into the metals bin. All gone. He then said I should pay for it and I said -- not unless the guy will pay the vet bill. After all these years -- that's where it stands.

Animals are living creatures and as long as they are not bothering us we should leave them alone! Live and let live! How would you like to be in the position of this poor animal? Today this animal...tomorrow YOU.

Why are these torture devices still lawful?! Just because it is not the human species that is the target doesn't make it right to torture! In fact humans could very WELL get trapped as can household pets. It is way past time to ban all these stone age torture practises!

No living thing should have to die this way.

I found a coyote in a trap and her leg was so mangled, the bone was showing. There is no justification for this brutality.

Why don't we just go back to bleeding people to cure them? How dumb and mean does the human race want to be, and for how long?
