Mail: Vote 'no' on hunting, fishing amendmentTell North Platte what you think

Next week, Nebraska residents will be voting next week on Proposed Amendment No. 2, which would make hunting and trapping a right, thereby protecting the use of "traditional" hunting and trapping methods and shadowing the option of safer, less cruel live traps.

If this amendment is passed, Nebraska would never be able to ban cruel traps.

Steel-jaw, body-gripping, and snare traps are exceedingly cruel. Even rubber-coated traps cause immense pain and injury.

Body-gripping traps crush bones and slowly suffocate animals, while snares jerk tightly around victims' necks, faces, bodies, or limbs. With all these traps, terrified animals, in their frantic struggles to escape, will commonly injure themselves further, snapping bones and tearing flesh—some animals even chew off their own limbs to break free.

By voting “No” on this issue, we can demonstrate that our state cares about the welfare of our wildlife, as well as show that we are compassionate people.

Please vote “No” on Proposed Amendment No. 2.

By Pamela Gehring, Columbus
