From 7 May 2001 Issue:


HR 1187 has been introduced in the US Congress to ban leghold traps.

The trappers are shooting off thousands of letters and phone calls to Congress in hopes of killing our bill!

We need to get your Congresperson to sign on as a cosponsor to HR 1187.

Long Island Congresswoman Nita Lowey is the sponsor of the bill.

Please contact your US Representative and encourage him/her to sign onto the bill as a cosponsor.

All US Representatives can be reached by writing:

To the Honorable ______________ US House of Representatives Washington, DC 20515

Points to Make

1. Leghold traps maim animals.  These landmines for wildlife are spring powered instruments of torture that snap shut on an animals paw with a vice-like grip.   Torn flesh, ripped tendons and fractured bones are common place.

2. Leghold traps are non-selective.  Whatever comes along with fall into the trap.  This includes peoples dogs and cats.

3. Leghold traps serve no legitimate purpose.  These cruel devices are banned in 90 countries and 8 states, with no negative results at all.

Make those calls! Let's out hustle the trappers!

Compliments of JP..

We could ban these traps in all states if we would only stick together and support each other.
