Support Legislation to End Trapping

Dangerous, indiscriminate traps set by private individuals and federal employees litter our public lands. They threaten not only the animals targeted for trapping, but also people, companion animals, river otters, lynx, eagles, foxes, porcupines, dogs, and others who become ensnared in them. Representative Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) has introduced a bill that would save thousands of animals from horrible deaths by banning almost all trapping on our public lands. Join us in asking your representatives to co-sponsor this important bill.

Note: Since this action targets U.S. lawmakers, only U.S. citizens are eligible to take action.
