Whistleblowers have just informed PETA that the village of Orland Park has set conibear and/or leg-hold (body-gripping) traps in several local ponds in order to drown families of beavers. The body-gripping traps used by trappers to capture and kill beavers cause immeasurable suffering. Death by drowning is also extremely cruel and is condemned by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) in its "2000 Report of the AVMA Panel on Euthanasia" (Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, 218 (5): 696). It can take up to 24 minutes for beavers to drown. Imagine beavers' terror as they struggle and fight against the body-gripping traps and suffer from lacerations and internal injuries. Such trapping is a cruel and ineffective way to resolve perceived problems with beavers.
These beavers need your help. They will continue to suffer horribly and be killed if something isn't done immediately. Tell Orland Park's mayor to pull these horrible traps and accept PETA's offer to help find better solutions.
