    On July 26, 2011, Congresswoman Nita Lowey (D-NY) introduced legislation to end the use of brutal traps on furbearing animals within federal wildlife refuges. The Refuge from Cruel Trapping Act, H.R. 2657, is intended to help to restore the original intent of the National Wildlife Refuge System by placing a ban on the use of cruel body-gripping traps on these public lands.
    National Wildlife Refuge System ~ Origins & Mission
    President Theodore Roosevelt established the first National Wildlife Refuge on Pelican Island, Florida, in 1903 to protect imperiled bird species from the commercial feather trade. Since then, 550 refuges totaling more than 150 million acres have been added to the refuge system.
    Managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service FWS), the National Wildlife Refuge System(NWRS) contains the most comprehensive and diverse collection of fish and wildlife habitats in the world, harboring more than 240 endangered species, over 700 kinds of birds, 220 mammal species, 250 reptile and amphibian species, and 200 kinds of fish. The mission of the NWRS is "to administer a national network of lands and waters for the conservation, management, and where appropriate, restoration of the fish, wildlife, and plant resources and their habitats within the United States for the benefit of present and future generations of Americans."...

    Vince,
    Always better to be informed and on the "offense", than caught unawares and on the "defense". Thanks!

    Vince, I like that site, thanks. I have something similar on my iPhone. Looks like a lot of liberals on that site based off the polls though.

    LOL baiting is illegal... so go do an illegal act before the illegal season opens?

    Here's the bill: Attachment 58784 Pretty silly to be sure, and not likely to get the time of day, but it certainly is NOT "a bill to stop trapping on all Federal lands" as was stated in the OP.

    Unbelieveable that a "sabotage-a-legal-activity" organization can have so much Internet space where it can be seen, joined, supported... I bet its likely that a frustrating situation like this is why some people recently tried to pass laws regarding Internet censorship (which is a "fix" that is worse than the problem).

    At least their main web site got shut down: http://www.huntsab.org/

    But they're still on youtube at the link you posted, on facebook here: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Americ...99764820061162 and myspace has a particularly large spread on this illegal org: http://www.myspace.com/huntsab

    And google actually has over a 100K results where these guys can be found online: http://www.google.com/#hl=en&sugexp=...26d37ade666d03

    Unbelievable.

    The worst part about it is that since baiting is 100% legal they are condoning illegal acts to stop a legal act. Which I dont see how anyone with a brain can give them any credibility. And some of the comments are mind blowing some people are saying they want to kill hunters thus putting and animal that will riP them apart ahead of a human.

    Got to thinking today and on the website Vince posted there were several "Anti" posters and many stated how trappers also catch their dogs and cats... True, I know I have... Then I thought wait a minute - we all know what every dog and cat does when they are left unattended to roam - THEY HUNT! Period!!! These liberals are saying its OK for me to let my pet run around killing and maiming wild animals - usually baby wild critters - but whoa, shame on the trapper that wants to take an animal and actually utilize it... What hypocrites...

    dogs and cats seldom utilize every part of an animal that they kill. I have seen my dog catch a bird and then leave it to waste on the ground. This has got to stop. They are the problem, not humans.
