In response to the recent decision to end the trapping of nuisance coyotes in Churchill park by the Cambridge city council after being pressure by anti-trapping organizations, the ADTC executive has submitted a communication to the Mayor of Cambridge, Doug Craig. The letter, attached at the bottom of this post, expresses our disappointment as trappers within Ontario and refutes claims made by the anti trapping organizations. As encouraged by the Ontario Fur Managers Federation, the ADTC would also echo their sentiment by encouraging other trappers to write letters of their own to the Cambridge city council. Trappers have been managing wildlife sustainable, ethically, and successfully all across Ontario, with those areas that go without management experiencing disease and an increase in wildlife/human conflict.
