For those who haven't heard, they are trying to ban traps in Connecticut. Here is a link to track the bil: http://www.cga.ct.gov/asp/cgabillstatus ... _year=2009

Ofcourse, if this passes, that would possably be a stepping stone to the rest of us, so keep a look out. I know this isn't the first attempt at something like this, but figure we should all be awhere of each attempt. I don't have much more info than this, yet, so if anyone else has any, please share with the rest of us.

why cant people just leave other peoples buisiness alone. We dont take vegetarians to court for hurting the Vegetables...The us supreme court should just make a ruleing basically saying mind your owne buisiness...
There is way more things to be worrying about around the world than wildlife managment practices...And its not like we are constantly trapping them so there is massive extinction of species...they will always be around...because of humans, their populations have grown with the regulations, and are at a steady balance...

Right on Deertag.

I searched for a link for you, but they all seem to be written in the anti's propoganda, so I won't post those links here. If you find one that's more sinsible, please post it.

Got this from boston.com
"HARTFORD, Conn.—A proposed ban on leghold traps, such as the one blamed for recently snaring a great horned owl, has cleared it's first legislative hurdle in Connecticut.

The Environment Committee voted 22-8 on Friday to support a bill which would forbid any body-gripping or leghold trap. It now moves to the Senate.

While many lawmakers believe the traps are inhumane, others say there should be exemptions to allow municipalities and the state Department of Environmental Protection to use the devices to control nuisance animals -- such as coyotes and beaver.

The panel's co-chair says those concerns will be taken into account as the bill moves through the legislative process.

The owl, rescued in Wallingford in January, was recently euthanized because of an infection caused by the trap."
This might be a win for the anti's... :cry: :? :( :x :evil: :cry:

Um, yeah, that's one of the ones I found. "body crushing"? :? Not to pic we want to present for our case. Also, the owl was poached in an illegel trap set by a POACHER, not legely harvested in a legely set trap by a true TRAPPER. That one doesn't mention the "illegel" part I saw in afew others, but those were still in anti wording, too.

Thanks, though.

I believe, this owl story is from a "terrorist" group of people that is using the owl to justify the means, which is trying to stop the working poor from feeding their families. This is a repeat story from Massachusetts a few months ago and I think another state had a similar story. The problem is no one is investigating the story to determine if the stories are true.

Im tired of ignorant people calling them "leghold" traps! They are foothold traps designed to hold them by the pads of their feet and foot. They have never trapped a day in their life. They get the misconception that they catch them by the leg and break their legs leading to suffering. I have released non target animals ex:(pitbull terrior) from my traps and they have walked away with no signs of distress or pain. We need to stand up for the truth and what is right!

Yeah I second the opinion I caught a kitty in a mink set. He was wet and not happy but his foot was just fine lol Had that been a conni he wouldn't of been as lucky... Both traps have their places and should be allowed to be used accordingly.
