  • Animal Traps That Grip or Snare are Banned in L.A. as “Inhumane”

    "The Los Angeles City Council voted unanimously Wednesday to ban traps that snare or grip coyotes, bears, foxes and other animals in the city, deeming such traps inhumane. Under the new rules, commercial trappers cannot use traps that grip or snare any part of the animal, with the exception of traps set for rats, mice and other small rodents. Angelenos are banned from using any trap “that maims or causes the inhumane death or suffering of any animal,” the rules state." Photo:(Lawrence K. Ho / Los Angeles Times / January 5, 2011)
