Body Grip Trap #220 Firing

This video shows the trap that is currently killing most of the dogs in MN: the #220 body grip trap. When it gets regulated, some trappers shift to a slightly smaller size, like the #160--and dogs continue to be killed.

Trapping ethics call for precautions to protect dogs, but Minnesota laws don't. Some Minnesota trappers only pay attention to the law, and disregard the ethics. That's a problem.

To protect smaller dogs (like Brittanies, Beagles, and Terriers) we'll need to regulate the #160 body-gripping traps as well. To protect all dogs, we'll need to regulate snares as well--on land, only cable restraints.
