2. .@idfg It is cruel, shameful and apathetic to extend the time period by which any trapper must check every snare placed for #wolves to 8 days in portions of GMU7 & GMU9 from January 1 – February 15. #WhatsWrongWithIdaho pic.twitter.com/tYXn6ykubC
3. .@idfg Snaring is as cruel as it is indiscriminate and though snares are set with the intention of being quickly lethal to a captured wolf, there is absolutely no guarantee of a quick kill. NO on your proposal. #WhatsWrongWithIdaho pic.twitter.com/FU3jmfJutz
4. .@idfg This is what can happen with a wire snare, and while you think “it is impractical for most trappers to run a trap line in compliance with the 72 hr check requirement,” for the animals sake, you are dead wrong. #WhatsWrongWithIdaho pic.twitter.com/8672iBQToU
5. .@idfg Already, it is outrageous that a trapper is required to check their trapline just every 72 hoursthat’s 3 very long days 4 an animal to suffer in a trap before being “dispatched.” To extend that time frame is unconscionable #WhatsWrongWithIdaho pic.twitter.com/QpoQpgcZC5
6. .@idfg “Death can take hours through an extremely painful and slow process. I cannot comprehend the decision of government “to elicit this kind of suffering and pain to a living being.” – Dr. J. Diaz (DVM- UCalgary) NO on your proposal. #WhatsWrongWithIdaho
7. .@idfg Proponents of the proposed rule state that because snares are typically lethal very quickly, the 72hr check frequency is unnecessary. Tell the animal snared by limb, left to languish, and suffer in a trap 8 days about “Typically” SMH #WhatsWrongWithIdaho
8. .@idfg NO on your proposal to allow trappers to check every snare placed for #wolves to up to 8 days in portions of GMU7 & GMU9 from January 1 – February 15, rather than 72hrs. Have a heart! #animalcruelty #StandForWolves #WhatsWrongWithIdaho pic.twitter.com/IqTMa10L7X
