Dog Lovers 4 Safe Trapping MN
What we want: We want proven, common-sense regulations to protect dogs from lethal traps & snares.
What we do: We lobby to change the current body grip trap and snare regulations to protect our dogs.
Who We Are
We are dog lovers from across the state of Minnesota who work with our state legislators, DNR officials, local authorities, and other dog enthusiasts to regulate the use of lethal trapping devices to reduce their danger to domestic dogs.
We are non-partisan trappers, upland game hunters, waterfowl hunters, hounds men, and all kinds of dog lovers who want to be free to enjoy the great outdoors without risk of losing our canine companions to unnecessary, lethal trapping methods.
When this issue is resolved, we'll get out of politics and back to what we love the most: spending time in the woods and fields with our dogs.
What We Want
We want to protect dogs by establishing the following for body grip traps and lethal snares.
We want these proven methods to be used. Tens of thousands of trappers in other states and Canadian provinces use these proven methods and don't kill dogs.
Five feet above the ground or ice
Submerged in water
In boxes that exclude dogs
Lethal snares replaced with non-lethal cable restraint snares on land
The current body grip trap regulations will not protect your dog. The same sets that have been killing MN dogs for decades are still legal.
