IT IS A TRAP. Here is what will happen, more people walking dogs, dog dies there is a reason to BAN ALL trapping. Some animal rights activist is in a position (undercover) to influence policy and this is how it starts.
Just my thoughts, however, the government knows what is best, right?!
My opinion, trappers should question if this is best management practice. Maybe express we don' want this, if this is what we want to do.
Other opinions, reasons why we need this locally?

You could be right mark, at the very least my feeling is, as sportsmen and conservationists, we need to get full details and if needed should take an active stance against it.

There's no way we can use these east of the Mississippi, though a neighboring state does use them which for various reasons is surprising. Should be limited to the private ranches where casual trespassing people or domestic animals are non-existent.

What I saw last week said it is used on federal land out west. I guess the use was stopped after pets were killed. It did say there has to be signage warning people of them being in the area and the actual set has to be marked. The big down side is it kills any animal that trips the trap.
