 As a NY taxpayer I am outraged and appalled to learn of the DEC plan to 
 increase the numbers and areas where bobcats can be hunted and killed. The 
 bobcat is an important member of our natural community and should not be 
 killed for sport or for their fur. The hunting and cruel slaughter of this 
 magnificent animal is objectionable to most animal lovers and NY residents 
 and endangers many other animals including household pets who get caught in 
 the cruel traps set by hunters.  This is the 21st century and there can be no 
 justification for this barbaric and inhumane treatment of our wildlife.

 Bobcat Hunting and Trapping

 Stop 5 Year Plan to Expand Killing of Bobcats
  
 This video may be hard to watch, but it was much harder on the bobcats who 
 have been silently suffering.  Direct link:  http://youtu.be/h1Z179_I3ds
  
  
 Scroll down past the transcript to send a letter now!
 Transcript:  The New York Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) is 
 proposing a 5-year plan that would greatly EXPAND the hunting and trapping of 
 bobcats within the state.
 
 The new plan would DOUBLE the annual number of bobcats that hunters and 
 trappers can kill and would also open up vast new areas of the state that 
 previously were off limits for hunting and trapping.
 
 According to DEC, the proposed five-year plan will provide sustainable use 
 and enjoyment of bobcat by the public. How can the killing of innocent 
 animals be deemed enjoyment?
 
 
 Trappers and hunters kill more than 500 bobcats annually in New York alone. 
 And now they want to double that number to 1000! Prized as trophies, many 
 bobcats are stuffed by taxidermists and sold to collectors. But far more are 
 killed for their pelts, which sell for $50 to $200 each. And often these 
 pelts are exported outside of the U.S. and dyed to look like ocelot pelts in 
 order to make even more money for the trappers and hunters!
 
 Dave Miller, the executive director of the New York State Trappers 
 Association, which has about 1,700 members, has been quoted as saying, We 
 are pretty excited about this proposed expansion of bobcat trapping.
 
 We need YOU to let New York DEC know that you don’t support the killing of 
 bobcats, and are appalled that they are considering this plan to expand such 
 a cruel, inhumane and unnecessary practice! Don’t let bobcat trappers and 
 hunters be the only voices on this issue that DEC hears…please speak up and 
 be a voice for these cats!
 
 Comments will be taken through Feb. 16 so please take action TODAY and make 
 your voice heard!

I would like to set out traps for the hunters.  Let them struggle to free 
themselves and die in fear  from the elements.  If they have to hunt them at 
least give them a fighting chance, the ability to spot you and get away.  Ths 
is such a lazy way of hunting.

I hate traps and trappers.  But then we also have the people who buy their 
product. They are also disgusting. Echo bakeware manufactures traps. I refused, 
years ago to purchase any of their products, ever again!
