Re: Sierra Club Seeking Comments on Trapping Policy

Someone else posted it on trapperman. I've posted it on several other boards, but I'm not signed up to post on coyotes-r-us. Please post it there if you can.

Re: Sierra Club Seeking Comments on Trapping Policy

Sounds to me like they are totally against trapping.

Re: Sierra Club Seeking Comments on Trapping Policy

This is an opportunity to comment on a policy <span style="font-weight: bold">before</span> it is implemented. Until now the Sierra Club has not had an official policy regarding trapping. They have focused on ecosytem-wide issues. If this new policy is implemented it will be a fundamental change in their message. I'm not going to assume all is lost and bury my head in the sand if there is a chance to inform and persuade before the policy is adopted.

Re: Sierra Club Seeking Comments on Trapping Policy

I suggest passing the word amongst the trapping community so we can help educate these voters.

I'll keep my money, guns, ammo, and health care; you can keep your change

Re: Sierra Club Seeking Comments on Trapping Policy

Here is the policy they are proposing. It reads like a press release from PETA/HSUS.
Quote:
Use of body-gripping devices — including leghold traps, snares, and Conibear® traps — are indiscriminate to age, sex and species and typically result in injury, pain, suffering, and/or death of target and non-target animals.

The Sierra Club considers body-gripping, restraining and killing traps and snares to be ecologically indiscriminate and unnecessarily inhumane and therefore opposes their use.
The Sierra Club promotes and supports humane, practical and effective methods of mitigating human-wildlife conflicts and actively discourages the use of inhumane and indiscriminate methods.

Implementation and application of this policy should be based on the most recent and relevant science and should minimize harm to ecosystems

The Sierra Club has gone over to the Antis a long time ago.
