Trapping Abuse by Federal Employees

Federal Wildlife Agent Jamie Olson

Photographs of animal abuse and suffering posted on a Wildlife Services' agent's Facebook and other Web pages are stirring anger among wildlife  advocates. The images show two dogs savagely attacking a coyote in a leg-hold trap and the employee posing with the tattered carcass of a coyote. They also show other trapped animals dead and alive. The Facebook photos began to circulate on the Internet on October 30, 2012 after being spotted by an environmentalist. The Facebook page has since been taken down.

U.S. Forest   Service Employee Josh Bransford

After Congress took gray wolves off the endangered species list in 2011, a Forest Service employee came under fire for trapping a wolf in Idaho and snapping a photo of the wounded animal before killing it. Some reports indicated that gun shots were also taken at the trapped wolf before ending its suffering. Read the Washington Post's article:
