Rep. Nita Lowey Introduces Bill to Safeguard Wildlife
Representative Nita Lowry (NY) has reintroduced a federal bill, the “Refuge from Cruel Trapping Act (H.R. 3513)” which seeks to end the use of body-gripping traps in the National Wildlife Refuge System.

Why is this important? Traps are indiscriminate, capturing those not intended for the trap, including endangered animals, pets and people, and can leave permanent physical damage to anything that gets caught. Animals suffer pain, trauma and stress when held by traps, and immobilized animals can experience dehydration, hunger, panic-induced self-mutilation, exposure to weather and predation, all of which constitute animal cruelty.
Thanks an big thanks to Rep Nita Lowey!
