Stop the use of Leg-Hold, Snare and Conibear traps in Alberta

Barbaric and in-humane traps are still widely used and legal in Canada.

The traps not only slowly kills the animals being hunted for their Meat and Fur, but also effect "Non Target" catches such as Cats and Dogs.

Leg- hold traps are the issue I decided to start this petition after I saw a dog rescued in Alberta that has a leg hold trap on its front paw.

Thankfully there are rescue organizations that are there to help dogs in this situation, but we need to do more, to make sure these situations become ones of the past.
Please sign this petition; we need to speak for those who have no voice.

      It's a cruel thing to do. How would you like one of your limbs caught in one of those traps??
