Wildlife Abuse: Law vs. Ethic
There should be more laws protecting wildlife. I was babysitting for my cousins, and they told me that their neighbor traps squirrels. Naturally, as a squirrel rehabilitator, i was a little irritated. But when i asked what she did to them is when i got the real shock. She would live trap them, and then stick the enire trap, squirrel and all, into a bucket of water, shake it up, and wait for it to drown. According the the minnesota laws, a person can do whatever they want about nuisance animals on their property. It makes me so mad, she was too lazy to care for her house, so the squirrels started chewing on the rotten wood, and she decided to brutally murder them. I believe that that is where the law failed. and that is where i stepped in. My cousins brought me the trap and I twisted the metal that opens the trap, so the little squirrels are safe, for now.
