Tell Cabela's and Bass Pro Shop: No more wolf 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 are lethally efficient: They wrap tight around a wolf's neck, starving its brain of blood and killing it quickly. More often than not, however, they don't do their job as planned. Snares constrict around a wolf's snout or limb, leaving the animal trapped in immense pain until the hunter puts it out of its misery. Sometimes this may take a few hours; sometimes a few days.
Snares are unnecessary, indiscriminate and cruel. They have no place in America's great outdoors. That's why I'm urging you to ban the sale of cable snare traps for wolves from Cabela's and Bass Pro Shops.
