The National Trappers Association is pressuring the US
Post Office to develop a pro trapping postage stamp. The NTA has even
threatened to sue the US Post Office if they don't get their way.
People opposed to cruel traps generated letters to the
post office about this issue a month ago. But the trappers are making a
second push to get their way.
Please write the US Post Office and ask them not to give
into the threats of a small organization that is out of touch with the
majority of Americans.
You can point out that any stamps commemorating fur
trapping will serve no purpose other than to glorify cruel devices that
crush into animals paws, tear flesh, and rip tendons.
