Trapping inhumanePublished 10:05am Wednesday, January 23, 2013
To the editor:
Regarding “The request for legal trapping of animals.”
It seems to me that with the lack of leash laws in most of Polk County and the sickening amount of dead cats and dogs that are seen along our roads, the last thing we need are animal traps.
Trapping is the most inhumane manner of killing any of God’s creatures. We humans already do more damage to the county than any done by these animals mentioned. Mr. Smith’s statement, “we should cooperate with wildlife to get rid of these things,” not only destroys our wildlife but will also ensnare our pets and possibly our young children.
Lets remember why we love living here. Keep the law as is.
