Bird Victims of Trapping
February 7, 2016 / Near Turah, MT
Another, known, Great Horned Owl in Montana caught in a leghold trap. This trap weighed basically as much as the Owl. In Montana, the majority of the "incidental" trapping victims, including Eagles, Owls, Mtn Lions, dogs, etc. have been deemed a result of legal trapping. Why?

Another known trapped Bald Eagle. This one relying on a landfill to eat as hunting for food with a trap attached is out of the question. Hopping along the ground to scavenge would also be difficult and is how it perhaps was caught in the leghold trap to begin with. Trapping is indiscriminate.

A bald eagle is recovering in Cody after being snagged by an illegal trap in Idaho. The eagle was taken to a raptor recovery center in Jackson. It may survive, but other raptors caught in traps in Wyoming have not.

Trapping and the indiscriminate cruelty it inflicts. How do trappers sleep at night or look at themselves in the mirror knowing the truths of this horror, they call recreation or ridiculously, science based regulated wildlife management?

Does this reflect freedom for our national emblem and what Montanans would ever want enshrined into our constitution as a right?

A maimed golden eagle highlights what could be a growing problem with improperly placed animal traps.

Senator Wagoner, sponsor of HB 212, that tried to enshrine trapping into our constitution testified vermin and introduced species are the ones that many get trapped. Little does he apparently know. While this is very refreshing a trapper was actually caught and charged it is a rarity.
