“Hey! Look at the cool fur jacket!” Sabrina Johnson cried and pointed to a grey fur jacket hanging up near-by. She picked it up and put it on.
“It‘s soo warm and perfect for this freezing Michigan weather! It says a 100% lynx fur,” Sabrina continued.
“Fur isn’t cool – in fact it’s cruel,” Lydia Neosho, Sabrina’s best friend, spoke up. “The steel-jaw leghold trap is the most common trap used in the U.S. When the trap’s metal jaws snap close, and the animal tries to escape, they may chew or twist away their limbs. To kill the animals without damaging their fur, trappers may strangle, beat or stomp on them. Traps don't always capture the animal the trapper wants; dogs, cats, raptors, deer and raccoons are accidental trapped. The good thing is that this trap is banned in quite a few states and more than 80 countries.”
