California: bans the murder of fur animals with traps. We say: thank you!


California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) signed a bill Wednesday that makes it illegal to trap animals or sell their fur, making California the first state in the U.S. to impose a fur trapping ban.

Wednesday, Sept. 4, 2019. (AP Photo/Rich Pedroncelli): “Fur trapping is a cruel practice that has no place in 21st century California. Thank you @CAgovernor for signing our #AB273 to make our state the first in the nation to ban this necessary (and costly) practice”!

The number of licenses for recreational and commercial fur trapping have declined in recent years, according to The Associated Press. The state issued 133 licenses last year, resulting in 1,568 animals trapped and 1,241 pelts sold. Animals commonly trapped for their fur in California include coyotes, gray foxes, beavers, badgers and mink.


Environmental groups, including the Center for Biological Diversity, have opposed fur trapping as contributing to declines animal populations, including sea otters and beavers.

But other groups, including the California Farm Bureau Federation, opposed the bill, arguing ranchers and farmers hire commercial trappers to control wildlife and protect their crops. They say banning trapping and the sale of fur would end that practice.

My comment: And again, the farmers complain.
The farmers can protect their animals (which they have for slaughter, anyway) with fences.

The peasants can not undestand any other way of living together with animals, except animals to benefit and to slaughter. And if another animal interferes this procedure, they mean it needs to be eliminated.

There is nothing more devious and cruel than traps.
And this devious method of killing is practiced by both: farmer and hunter.

Because I live up in the Black Forest, I have often found some such murderous installations and “edited” them accordingly.


Thanks California! it’s only a matter of time before other cities or countries introduce the same ban.

Best regards to all, Venus
