Letter: Suspend the wolf hunt

Email

I was stunned to learn recently that the recent wolf hunt allowed for the use of traps and snares, which are both cruel practices that result in an extremely painful and slow death.  These tactics are not only merciless but dangerous, sometimes trapping non-targeted species including domesticated animals, moose and lynx.

The only way to be sure these methods are never used legally is to suspend the wolf hunt. I urge our legislators to address this extremely important issue and do everything possible to stop the use of traps and snares, as well as suspend the wolf hunt.
