New Film Available on Trapping

Hi my name is Amelia Frank-Vitale and I am with Bullfrog Films. I'm writing about a new film in which Animal Rights Online readers might be interested. In this heartbreakingly frank look at the animal trapping industry, the viewer gets to see trapping from the point of view of the trapper as well as the animals.

Cull of the Wild: the Truth Behind Trapping explains and demonstrates different types of traps and shows that the so-called "humane" traps still sentence helpless animals to a gruesome and painful death. The film also examines the new dangers of trapping that have resulted from the suburbanization of farmland and forests. As trappers lose the rural areas to continued development and the market for fur is decreasing, they often turn to "pest control," killing "nuisance animals" and simultaneously putting household pets and children in harms way.

Cull of the Wild also looks at the difficult fight to stop trapping, but gives the viewer reason to hope that this unnecessary and heartless practice can be stopped through the work of grassroots activism, education and public policy changes. If you have any interest in purchasing this film, please let me no. If not, please spread the word about its existence to like-minded individuals and organizations. Perhaps you would put a link to the film on your web site. If you have any questions or would like further information on the film, please reply to me or visit our web site at
