Re: “Vermont Animal-Rights Activists Aim to Keep Pets Safe From Traps

My grandfather was a sexual abuser of children. So was my father. It's one of those things. It's part of growing up here in Vermont and not moving here from Connecticut.

Re: “Vermont Animal-Rights Activists Aim to Keep Pets Safe From Traps

Lifelong Vermonter here. Time to stop trapping. I would give my eye-teeth to see a bobcat on my property, to know that there's a family of bobcats up there on the hill. To think that there are people causing these animals or any animals to die tortuously for the sake of their fur makes me WEEP. You say you have a right. What about my right to see wildlife?
And if Lynx just duck in from Canada once in a while, what are two doing in Southern Vermont?
I don't think we should make it impossible for off-grid people who actually walk-the-walk to survive off the land. But I can't see any positives about trapping.
