Speak out against lethal trapping in Cornwall, Ontario

Trapping and killing coyotes does not reduce their population. As long as there is habitat and a food source, more coyotes will return to the area. Leg-hold, Conibear and snare traps are cruel and dangerous and have no place in modern day society. Non-lethal options are available.

      if this is legal then why are booby traps not for robbers????? these animals have done nothing wrong and are entitled to live, if there is an issue dont be lazy and pick up your rifle and put them down humanely, I am a hunter and this disgusts me, shame on you Ontario.

      My lab spent a horrible night caught in a leg hold trap that was targeting coyotes and was right behind our property on well-used public land, and it was LEGAL. He would have been a "garbage animal" to the trapper.

      It is time to end this barbaric, inhumane torture and get out of the early 1900's!!!
