Frightened wolf rescued from a trap and returned to the wild.
Whatever the purpose, the consequences for the trapped animals are the same — pain, suffering, and death.
Proponents argue that traps are humane and selective, and that trapping is tightly regulated, an important source of income for many people, and necessary for managing wildlife. These claims, however, are far from the truth.
Despite what trappers would have you believe, animals frequently sustain severe injuries from being trapped.
When not killed outright by the trap, animals can suffer physiological trauma, dehydration, exposure to severe weather, and predation by other animals until the trapper returns. When the trapper returns he usually clubs, suffocates or strangles the animal to death.

Wolves helped save America’s most famous national park. When they were reintroduced to Yellowstone in 1995, the effect they had on the damaged ecosystem was nothing short of miraculous.
