Anderson stated in an interview with Fox12

“It’s very clear that they have been deliberately placed in the same location. It will be one animal at a time and several days will pass between the calls.”

Not only are the animals being trapped with illegal leg hold devices, but a great number of them also died of poisoning. Both methods of killing animals are extremely painful ways to die and considered inhumane.
Clark County, Washington
It’s unknown who the poisoned cats belonged to because they weren’t microchipped. One of the raccoons managed to drag a trap to a backyard fence where the trap became stuck.
Anyone who knows anything about these deaths is asked to contact Clark County Animal Protection and Control at 564-397-2488.
Note: Can someone please explain why some traps are legal and some are illegal, as any trap would have to cause a slow and painful death.

  1. And this is the problem with authorities. It is always “could” not will! Any animal abuse should be faced with an automatic death sentence! I don’t give a shit if it is a kid or an sdult. Once an asshole, always an asshole .
