Reduce the Roadkill

Mike McKee, of the News-Dispatch in Michigan City, Indiana, says “road kills are a terrible waste” and advocates trapping to help cut down on furbearers dying on the roads. He adds:

“In addition to
being a great part of our heritage — exploration of North America was
prompted by fur traders — trapping helps maintain ecological balance,
curtails the spread of disease and reduces crop and property damage.”

What we do might be a hobby for most of us, but it’s also a necessary and valuable tool to help control animal populations. It’s not a bad idea to remind non-trappers of that once in a while. And who likes seeing highways littered with dead animals?
