If these cruel traps were judged by the agony they inflict, they would never be justified.

If your pet has been trapped:

 

 

Contact the local ODFW office and tell them about it. Give them details of the location and circumstances. There should be a small metal tag attached to the trap with a number on it. Record the number if you can, and give it to the ODFW.

 

Write a letter to the ODFW Director and complain. Send copies to the Commissioners.

 

Write a letter to your newspaper and give the details. Say when and where, and tell of any injuries. Describe the trap and what you did to release your pet. Mention what the ODFW told you, and whether the trap was legal or not. If you’re outraged, say so!

It can sometimes be difficult to write about a trapping incident, especially if your pet was badly injured or killed. But it helps to educate others about the danger to their animals from trapping and may spare them and their friends from the experience. It’s worthwhile.
