As we recently shared, research confirms the closure and efficency of quick death from traps and snares is as indiscriminate and cruel as the act of trapping itself is.
Conibear, body crushing, traps were designed in direct response to the suffering trapped animals endure. They are suppose to be a quick kill trap as the nuisance trapper who set this one had intended for this obvious painful raccoon…..”was to suppose to shut on it’s head.”
“This raccoon was admitted to us after being found in a trap. He had been there with his leg caught. As you can see he chewed apart the wood trying to free himself. Please use live traps when trying to capture a wild animal to move. This causes horrible unnecessary suffering. This trap was set by a pest control company in order to kill the raccoon. He passed away unfortunately due to capture myopathy. Shock.” Heaven’s Wildlife Rescue & Rehabilitation Center
There is no excuse for the barbaric act of trapping.
