    Could you all please sign this petition for me?
    My dog, on Christmas morning was caught in a steel leghold trap and I am trying to get it stopped. Could you please also spread the word to your friends, family and any other lists you are on, requesting that people sign this? I need 1000 signatures to present it to the DEC.

    Thanks so much, in advance for your help!

    Thankfully we have a 24 hour emergency vet here in town.. they are open only nights and weekends...but she was ok. Swollen a little but my husband got it off quickly and she was not too badly hurt.

    Signed, around here its snare traps that are the problem. Dogs get cought in them all the time.
    The reason dogs are great is they wag their tails, not their tongues.

    What is a snare trap? What is the difference between that and a leg hold?
    Does the snare have those spikes?
    People are terrible.
    How can anyone set these things?

    we used to have a lot of snare traps in the uk but they've been outlawed now but i think poachers still use them. as far as i remember its like an open metal mouth and when you step on the trigger in the middle its released and grabs you. i think from memory it has teeth but not spikes.

    That is what a leg hold trap is - a lever in teh middle and when stepped on it snaps closed and holds you.
