Bang on trapp, all consumptive users of our resources need to stand together and support one another's activities. I should also add that trapping is a vital component of wildlife management, helping to ensure a viable balance of species on the landscape. Trapping and the royalties derived therefrom also help fund our wildlife agencies that monitor and enforce regulations to protect our wildlife populations.

Canada was built on the fur trade, and our First Nations and trappers have a deep history of caring for our furbearers and stewardship of their habitat. I don't trap, but I do hunt, fish, and gather, and I support our trappers 110%.
Even with the new taxes, the platform projects another four years of deficits if the Liberals are re-elected on Oct. 21 — $27.4 billion next year, falling to $21 billion by the fourth year of the mandate.

Thank you for that. Perhaps I could give, donate, some of my coyote, wolf, mink and marten carcasses to those who want us to eat our catches. By the way all of the carcasses are returned to the land during the winter for the birds and other critters to eat and help them survive the winter.

I dont think you know what the meaning of hypocrite is I actually use what I hunt for food I dont get it stuffed and hang it on the wall or sell it, I also stated that it was my opinion and its well within their right to trap not once have I made the claim it should be banned , the 1800s are gone and so are the days of trading a beaver pelt and two mink for a rusty rifle.

you are uninformed. removed. it's a forum. Opinions are welcomed. I recommend attending a few events put on by the wild sheep society and become knowledgeable on the topic. or joining a local wildlife club. trapping is still a necessity for proper wildlife management.

It would be helpful if Castanet followed up on the story with the CO's. The public should be made aware of the legalities in this situation and repercussions if caught meddling with someone's livelihood.

Trapping is a way of life as hunting is a way of life as bitching about both are a way of life. More of the same tomorrow.
Responsible pet owners keep their dogs on leash regardless of where they are.
Sanctimonious self entitled pet owners think that it is their right to range their dogs freely.
You want to off leash your dog, take it to an off-leash park where you and it belong.

If you take your dog into the bush off-leash and let him go you don't know what he's going to come across. The dog (and you) are actually the intruders so take your chances, but don't whine if the dog (or you) gets schooled by a deer, a bear, a rattlesnake, a hive of bees, a porcupine etc or something like a legal trap line.

Letting your dog off-leash to run ahead and off-trail into the bush is all fun, fine & dandy until one of the critters that actually live there take exception.

You take the chance with your dog's (and your) life, you best be prepared to deal with the consequences. That's life, and your choice.

How would this owner know what is a legal trap or a illegal snare? Never assume, it could very well be a legal trap line.

As a dog owner you should keep in mind you are responsible for you dog. If it was out of sight, it may be chasing wildlife. IF it is it is fair game to be shot dead.

Just because we have dogs, we have to be responsible for them.

By the way please pick up after your dog and put the bag in the garbage not along trails or sidewalks!

Curious which group are you calling that to, owners of the legal trap line or irresponsible dog owners.

The trap was set legally according to the CO office.

Letting your dog run free is irresponsible and reckless. Luckily the dog wasn't killed thanks to it's owners negligence.

Yea, there’s some real *bleep* involved here alright, but they have absolutely nothing to do with setting that trap...
