Outlaw Brutal Animal Traps
by: Animals Group
recipient: The Honorable Michael J. Newman, Commonwealth’s Attorney of Danville, Virginia
When the Danville Area Humane Society received a call stating that an officer had found a cat in a trap, everyone expected the animal to have gotten stuck inside a humane cage-like device. The actual scene was grislier; mangled inside a steel body-gripping trap designed to keep groundhogs still while being transported, the cat suffered severe organ damage and internal bleeding. Sadly, it had to be euthanized. Join the Humane Society’s executive director Paulette Dean in demanding that these cruel traps be banned.


The Conibear traps that killed this innocent companion animal were allegedly designed to be humane, but the way they operate tells a different story. The traps snap shut when an animal wanders into them, applying 90 pounds of pressure per square inch. Many animals, wild and domesticated, suffocate in the steel jaws or slowly die of internal injuries.

Ever since Danville deferred wildlife trapping duties from its police department to a list of local, state-licensed trappers, the kinds of traps used have been more difficult to regulate. Instead of humane, live-capture traps, many trappers employ body-gripping traps and steel-jaw leg traps. These cruel devices cause countless animals to suffer grievous injuries and excruciating pain. In some cases, they even lose their lives.

No pet owner should have to fear this kind of brutality in their hometown. Call on the government of Danville, Virginia to put an end to these barbaric animal trapping practices.

Dear Michael J. Newman,

Countless animals have lost their limbs and even their lives to the brutal steel traps set by independent animal trappers in Danville. Both steel-jaw leg traps and body-gripping Conibear traps remain legal despite the suffering they cause. Recently, a cat who wandered into a steel body-gripping trap intended for groundhogs had to be euthanized following severe internal injuries.

Pet owners of Danville shouldn’t have to fear mutilation, pain, and suffering for their companions. These cruel devices have already caused too much harm. It’s time to make the city of Danville a safe, humane place for all living creatures. I urge you to ban these barbaric steel traps.
