New Mexico Sierra Club – FAQ on Trapping
The majority of people who recreate on wild lands do so to observe wildlife and birds, hike, walk their pets, backpack, take photographs and otherwise enjoy nature. That objective is frustrated by the practice of animal trapping.
Body gripping traps, such as legholds, Conibears and snares, are inhumane and indiscriminate. Traps capture non-target species that harm both individuals and entire wildlife populations, even imperiled species such as Mexican wolves, wolverines, and lynx. In addition, these traps pose a threat to the public and their domestic animals.
