NM Hikers Free Fox And "kidnap" it.
Got a kick out of this. It's not bowhunting and I don't trap, but I thought you guys would enjoy the read. The comments are as expected..
Sounds like FWS might run out of ink issuing tickets....
Well, you make a video of a live fox held by a leg hold trap and place that on a TV news program. So what not to expect.
Nothing more than animal rites, anti trapping propaganda.
I didn't read any of the comments, but I hope they are punished fully. Maybe could throw in something for refusing to cooperate in an investigation as well.
That would be obstruction of justice.
Rut Nut's Link
I wonder if that crew knows how many innocent rabbits, chipmunks, upland birds, mice, and possibly even fawns they just played a role in killing?
Brotsky- you just reminded me of this video somebody sent me the other day! : )
This should be prosecuted to the fullest extent. What's next? Kidnapping your dog or cat to free it of the slavery of owning pets? Freeing livestock? I saw the segment on the news last night and I was disgusted.
Rut Nut...That was hilarious.
Every year the Democrats bring a bill forward to eliminate and criminalize trapping here in NM -- and 'sportsmen' keep electing them.
Unfortunately this is the way our world is turning. These idiots that know nothing about animals and the environment are gonna take over. It's simple numbers. They are stacked up in the cities breeding like rabbits. Trapping is a easy target. It doesn't have near the amount of money backing it as gun or bow hunting. Once the antis get it banned in your state it's a easy step on the ladder to start making bigger moves on hunting. Thank goodness they've been held at bay this long but the future doesn't look good. Hope I'm wrong.
Great video, rut nut!
Reminds me of the sea otter story that Rush Limbaugh told about several years ago. A sea otter was rescued from the Exxon Valdez oil spill. It was all cleaned up, rehabbed, and released back into the wild, with great fanfare in Prince William Sound (I believe). There were bands playing, students got to get out of school to witness this tremendous event. They released the otter and he swam out into the sound. Suddenly, a killer whale surfaces and swallows it up in one fell swoop! It couldn’t have been scripted any better!!
Hillbilly x 2. We ALL need to back the trappers. I am appalled quite frankly at some of the anti-trapping comments made on this forum by so-called true-blue bowhunters. I have written comments and then deleted them before posting. I am no longer going to do that. You need to be called out. Folks there simply is no middle ground on this. You are either for us or against us. As Benjamin Franklin once declared: We must, indeed, all hang together or, most assuredly, we shall all hang separately. My 2 cents.
Agreed Mad Trapper! Not just trapping but other avenues of conservation as well.
