Wolf Snares Kill 15 Cougars, Eagle in Central Alberta, Spurring Debate Over Hunting Method
News that snares set for wolves killed 15 cougars and one golden eagle in central Alberta this winter is prompting a call to phase out a hunting method that some call “inhumane.”
Rodtka says because hunting is no longer a source of livelihood for most Albertans and is now “largely recreational,” it makes sense for the province to start phasing out neck snares.
NOTE: WYOMING …
12 mountain lions were reported killed in snares from 2009-2014. These are only the victims we KNOW about.
