Happy Near Year Everyone! Isn’t life grand? Wolves, coyotes, fox, a multitude of other wildlife and dogs are in danger of government-set snares in the McIntyre Creek and Porter Creek areas. This is an expendable attitude towards life!
“Quick kill” wire snares are cruel, barbaric, inhumane devices designed to strangle to death any animal unfortunate enough to be caught in these evil devices. Animals can be alive and suffering for days in these horrific devices.
Yukon’s Department of Environment have some questions to answer, and I tried getting those answers by phone. Instead I was forwarded back and forth between people who I’m sure out-number the wolf population in Yukon. On Sunday the department’s answering service hung-up the phone on me. Must be something I said.
Why wasn’t signage posted by Yukon’s conservation officers indicating that snares have been set-up in a popular hiking area? How about educating the public on the realities of trapping in general? Something to hide, perhaps? Instead of attracting wolves with bait, what deterrents (if any) were put in place?
Other than wolves caught and killed, what other wildlife and or dogs have been unfortunate to become victims of snares? Care to share any video footage of exactly what takes place every time snares are used to destroy the lives of non-humans?
Were any animals still alive when conservation officers finally checked these snares? Were they then shot to death by conservation officers? Anyone?
