CPW Com, denies Petition to ban trapContributors to this thread:
Good news, the CPW Commission unanimously voted to deny the HSUS Petition to ban live box trapping. Leg hold, body gripping, and snares were banned in 1997 by a Ballot Initiative by this same group, ie, HSUS which only now left box traps. We all know the motives of HSUS and the end that they promote, of all trapping and hunting.
Good news. Next stop...ballot.
This was great news to hear, but as Don (Glunt@work) mentioned they will now take it to the Front Range LA voters, Time to start promoting how important it is to keep what form of trapping is left, and how BAD HSUS is as an organization.
The end talk at the meeting was, about more collection of trapping data, population gathering of different species, bag limits, regulating the market and will it promote the demise of varies species. One can be sure that these above topics will be discussed within the CPW and at a future CPW Commission meeting. One can hear/see the meeting on Youtube, ie. Colorado Parks and Wildlife Commission meeting, March 17 and or 18. There is no doubt in my mind that HSUS knows exactly how to play this game and will surely be ready for round two, or three in the near future.
Coming to a ballot near you. They know they can bully the CPW by going around them with ballot initiatives. I think they try the easy, less expensive way first.
Going to be difficult to convince voters that "live traps" are bad and need to be banned.
They will try it will be on the 2022 ballot. I heard they are lumping it with ending bobcat hunting totally and also going for lions. They will spin the trapping to get to the bleeding hearts and convince them to vote for it.
In the HSUS mission statement concerning trapping. That statement approves of live traps under certain situations. But it seems, those certain situations do not include trapping for profit so HSUS will continue to bring this issue forward until..............
