Ban Snare Traps

To be delivered to Governor Jerry Brown

Petition Statement

Help ban the use of inhumane wire noose snare traps on Southern California coyotes.
There are currently 13,233 signatures. NEW goal - We need 15,000 signatures!

Petition Background

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.
