Ban Snare Traps

Help ban the use of inhumane wire noose snare traps on Southern California coyotes.

Why is this important?

For too long we have been senselessly and in most cases, inhumanely, destroying animals that are a necessary part of our ecosystem. Wire noose snares should be banned. Besides a horrible and inhumane death, the loss of coyotes creates an imbalance in nature. Without coyotes to feed on rodents we will soon have an increase in rodent populations, followed by the increased use of poisons and then a rise in the death of other native predators.
Our Los Angeles city councilman, Mitch O' Farrell's recent article in the L.A. Times made myself and others that were unaware of this practice deeply saddened and concerned. I'm asking for like minded Californians to help by signing today.


Reasons for signing

  • Would the people using these traps do this to other people? Doing it to animals is no different!
  • SHAME on humans--they deserve to live, like us, but not less.
  • I sign every one of the petitions I see regarding the trapping, killing, or otherwise harming wolves or preventing them from living their lives in pace whereever the are found. Keep up the good work!!
