Inevitably, trappers occasionally find that a dog or other pet has become trapped by a body-gripping trap. This useful brochure will show you what to do in this situation.
October 2015 has come and gone, it’s time for our monthly Fur In The News roundup. Let’s start with trapping since the season is now well under way.
We loved this piece, “Getting permission should be your mission,” for its very useful tips on maintaining a good relationship with the owners of the land on which you trap. It may not be at the forefront of trappers’ minds, but it certainly is important!
“Trapping is serious business” also features some great tips and reminds us all that the reputation of the trapping industry relies a great deal on how trappers work.
As for this debate, “Does hunting promote conservation?,” I’ll bet you can guess which side we are on!
We were thrilled to hear about this trapping education program in Ontario for primary and secondary students, which teaches them valuable skills and gets them out into nature. And if you aren’t a trapper and run into a coyote by surprise, this article tells you what to do. Best to read it now, since it might not be convenient when you actually need the information!
Below are pics from a cable restraint class at the NE Regional Office. Officer is Bill Williams, education supervisor for NE Region. The other instructor is Kevin Wenner, NE Regional Wildlife Management Supervisor. Nineteen students attended, one from Bedord co. and one from the Reading area.
