PEI Residents Petition for Ban on Trapping and Snaring

Residents on Prince Edward Island (PEI) are urging the provincial government to outlaw trapping and snaring, citing safety concerns for people and pets. The call for action follows incidents of animals, including pets, being ensnared in traps, leading to injuries and even death. Debbie Travers, whose dog was fatally caught in an illegal snare, is among those advocating for change. A petition, initiated by a concerned group, has gathered over 500 signatures and aims to be presented to Members of the Legislative Assembly.
