Trapper Article Needlessly Graphic

Letters / Anchorage Daily News / February 2, 2007

The recent article extolling trapping in the Mat-Su area was certainly "in your face" to environmentalists ("Fur finders," Jan. 9). Was there some reason the Daily News needed to run this story? Did the paper want to graphically illustrate this brutal, barbaric practice whose end product panders to the vanity of old women? Why not show pictures of the dead animals in the traps, or even better, mount a camera so we can watch their death throes a la Saddam Hussein.
