Trappers gain support
Farmington Minnesota P.O. Box 192 / 312 Oak St. 55024

Trappers would be eligible for lifetime small game hunting licenses under a bill that cleared a House outdoors committee.

The legislation may be included in a larger game and fish bill. One opponent said the legislation endorses activities that "puts us back to the medieval ages."

"There's nothing more barbaric, more vicious or cruel," than leg traps, said the Earth Protector Group's Leslie Davis.
