Trappers! Put Up or Shut Up!
by Oliver Starr
Enough of this trapping is humane, traps don’t injure animals bullshit! I’m tired of hearing these trappers spout their inane lies so here’s what I’m going to do. I’m putting up a bounty.
I’m offering $100 to the first trapper that posts a full length, uncut video of themselves placing their own hand (ungloved, un-sleeved, un-jacketed) into a full size, un-modified, un padded and professionally anchored #9 wolf trap. I want them to sit there, in the woods, just like if they were a wolf, for the full minimum trap check time of 24 hours before they are released by someone else. No weapons, no food, no water. Just like it is for any trapped animal. (Well, not just like, at least they will know who trapped them and why – plus, they can have their clothes on… see, I’m generous)
The first trapper to do this and provide the full length video documentary proof gets the prize. I’d offer more but that’s all I can currently afford. Who’s with me? Who will contribute to up the bounty. I’ll bet there’s not a single taker in the entire world. Not one. These guys need to either put up or shut up.
(yep, one of these, with both springs.) If they want to really show us that they aren’t painful or that the animals so trapped don’t suffer, call the media so they can document it for us.
Bounty Update! As of 9AM on 3/20/13 the bounty is up to $2070.00! It’s time for the wolf killers to put their arms where their mouths are… You can contribute to the bounty here.
