"choosing to surreptitiously nick loyal readers"
That says it all. Thanks for the heads-up, Indy.
Thank you, Dave W., for your tireless efforts. We will prevail.
Hi Chris...thanks for writing. Trapping (foothold, body-gripping, snaring...) is barbaric and archaic and many Montanans are working to end it. We get the reasons for it, too--additional reasons being a vendetta against wolves (and all predators); the desire to eliminate "nuisance" animals; and the desire for a trophy. What we don't get is how anyone can be so abjectly cruel.
You are aware, aren't you, that Kentucky also allows trapping? http://kentuckytrappers.com/regs.html
To all who are complaining about the "one-sided" article: Please re-read.
"Administrators at Care Net declined to comment for this story, and pointed to their website for more information about the center." And that's just what the Indy did, quoting extensively from the website. Kinda hard to hear from both sides when one side won't talk.
The author is entitled to her gun and her braggadocio. She's not entitled to paint ALL Montana women--not even all RURAL Montana women--with the same sweeping stroke.
"Before the 2008 election, the NRA distributed thousands of wallet-sized cards to its members: "Barack Obama's Ten Point Plan to 'Change' The Second Amendment." No. 1 was ban use of firearms for home defense...."
The NRA itself is an industry that exploits for profit the ignorance and paranoia of its many member-patriots. Wallet-sized cards outlining the gun-grabbing horrors of the Obama administration--a brilliant propaganda ploy to arouse its gullible minions, to ensure that they continue to pledge loyalty (and dollars!) to the one true watchdog of the right to bear arms. Look out--they're coming for your guns and ammo! Stockpile! Lie in the bushes and wait!
Terry K: Perhaps you need to become a more responsible pet guardian. Allowing domestic cats and dogs to roam freely is a probable death sentence for them where wild predators also roam freely. Rather than fueling predator hatred, perhaps you can do more to protect your beloved pets.
