Tell Cabela's and Bass Pro Shop: Ditch snare traps
To Bass Pro Shops and Cabela's:
Snare traps for wolves are inhumane, make a mockery of the hunting principle of fair chase, and have no place in outdoors stores like Bass Pro Shop and Cabela's.
When they do their job properly, these snares wrap tight around a wolf's neck, starving its brain of blood and killing it quickly. More often than not, however, things don't go to plan. Snares that constrict themselves around a wolf's snout or limb will leave the animal trapped in immense pain until the hunter can arrive and kill them. Sometimes this lasts a couple hours, sometimes a couple days.
These cruel indiscriminate instruments have no place in our country's outdoors -- and that's why I'm urging you to ban the sale of cable snare traps for wolves from Cabela's and Bass Pro Shops.
