This letter is to address Mike Dey’s letter on tapping (see “Trapping’s legacy,” April 24). The fact you are almost 77 years old has nothing to do with the obvious ignorance of trapping that you possess. Unnecessary torture for days, the ultimate cruelty—you dare speak of a god given right to do this to innocent animals. God did not grant you this right; he created these animals. What freedom are you saying we are born for? The right to a leg, a face, or left to die in a steel trap? What a frightening way to die.
