Dog_in_animal_shelter_in_Washington,_Iowa

In recent years, there has been an increasing number of reports from around Minnesota, including White Bear Lake, of pets being killed by body grip traps. These traps often catch non-target wildlife species, even rare and endangered animals. After his dog was lured into a body grip trap, Scott Slocum started a MoveOn Petition urging the White Bear Township Board to protect pets and children from traps. The voice of the community was heard and the White Bear Lake Council Members voted 4-1 for a new trapping ordinance that will effectively protect pets and children from traps.
