Letter to Wildlife Commission Sep. 20, 2011
Please enter this into the record.
I cannot believe we are still using these barbaric traps. These should be outlawed asap, and other means should be used. To create suffering, for any animal has not place in a civilized world. I know of someone whose precious family dog was caught in one of these, and lost his paw. It would be like burring [burying] land mines, and hoping only the enemy steps on them.
This is an unacceptable solution, and creates more problems than it solves. It is most cowardly to set a trap, hope the “intended” animal steps into, and then has to suffer, unless it mercifully dies, before a bullet is put in it.
Please let Nevada become part of the solution, and be good stewards of our lands.
