Trapping is merciless

Posted on Thu, Mar 10, 2011 at 4:00 AM

Bottom line: Trapping is a cruel and brutal way to kill an animal. Inflicting a slow and agonizingly painful death on any creature is indefensible (see “Feeling the squeeze,” Jan. 27, 2011).

Why some people participate and defend this merciless activity is perplexing, but I suspect the compassion component in these individuals’ genetic makeup may be underdeveloped or all together missing.
