The city of Ottawa, Ontario, is still considering using cruel traps to kill beavers. Body-gripping, steel-jaw, and snare traps are horribly cruel. Animals suffocate when the traps clamp down on their necks, or they drown (which can take up to 15 minutes, all the while experiencing extreme terror and pain) when traps pin them underwater. Panicked, exhausted animals trapped in shallow water can also drown, and many victims attempt to chew themselves free.

Please politely ask Ottawa to ditch the cruel use of traps entirely. And please forward this message widely!

Please send polite comments to:

Kent Kirkpatrick
City Manager of Ottawa

Nick Stow
Planner of Ottawa

The Honorable Jim Watson
Mayor of Ottawa
