I was all exceited about my son and I getting our trappers license.. Here in Calif they give you a book to study then you have to pass a test.. So we diligently start to study.. Common sense for most of it. until we get to the part of what traps are legal and what are not.... We grab pen and paper and get ready to write down the specifics so we can order traps... Guess what... You cant use any traps that actualy WORK... no leg holds, snares or anything that grips any part of body or limbs.. Only cage type traps, nets and LIVE beaver traps are allowed.. IN other words if your going after any canids, forget it.. You cant get them into a cage trap... They walk around and laugh at it like "You GOT to be kidding" LOL.. You cant use any of the normal traps that you wouild think of as being a part of trapping. I mean come on... Every dang bunny hugger in the US must live here... As they complain about deer, coons, coyotes etc coming in too close they wont let anyone go after these animals.. ANd the fish and game plays right in with the dang bunny huggers by making all these rules that are basically designed for you to NOT catch anything... Yes I am mad and IM on my soap box.... Calif has got to be the most rediculous state to live in.. And as IM griping and complaining about the stupid bunny hugger rules.. wondering why the heck I havent moved out of this stupid state...what should greet me on the front page of AOL welcome screen?? THIS---http://articles.news.aol.com/news/_a/raccoons-invade-los-angeles/20061119090309990001?ncid=NWS00010000000001 Raccoons invade neighborhood... And thnis lovely quote just floored me--- "What we're trying to inculcate in the L.A. community is a reverence for life. If we have more reverence for life, it translates into all our programs â for women and infants, the elderly and everybody in our community," said Ed Boks, the head of Los Angeles Animal Services. "As we develop these programs that demonstrate our compassion for creatures completely at our mercy, it makes for a more compassionate society all the way around."-- Like what the heck are these idiots thinking? Dogs being mauled!! People wont leave their dogs out at night and wont go walking at night??? What are they gonna do if its a child next?
