From the LA Times Article:
"We love those animals more than the people who are complaining about us trapping them do," Lawing said. "Nathan and I harvest adult male cats and turn loose adult females and kittens."

Reminds me of the infamous: "We had to destroy the Village in order to save it."

In this case, the trappers love the $$$. Which should not be confused with actually caring about the living animals.

Making an animal suffer through being caught in a trap is lame.

I understand the population control argument, and firmly disagree with trapping.

Maybe we should start trapping stupid people to save our fragile environment...just put traps around fast food joints...

Saw one deer hunting in wva once. Watched it watching deer and cleaning itself like a house cat for a half hour. Never occurred to me to take a shot. I was too enraptured with such an interesting animal.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. I signed.

Saw one on a little used trail when running one day 20 odd years ago in an open space preserve near Portola Valley (SF Bay area). Very cool animals.

And yup, it was just for a very brief moment.

My son's nickname it Bobcat too!

F*#k civil discussion. Trapping is cruel, plain and simple. I don't like hunting, but get that it can be done in a relatively humane way. Trapping is 100% BS, and the folks that do it are some seriously cold as#@&%es. Torturing an animal for its fur is not justifiable. No apologies for my language; it pales in comparison to the vulgarity of trapping.

we're talkin live traps here.


Not leg holds.


Treating wild kitties as near domestic pets is as irresponsible as taking them out of season or on prohibited property (monument or private)

There's one that considers the campsite at the end of the loop in Hidden Valley his personal domain.

I called one in once when we were all up at the base of a climb somewhere back around Lloyd's etc. Saw him down on the desert floor and called him up.

Not sure who had the most astonished look.

My buds when they saw him headed up for us or he when he realized I wasn't a rival or potential conquest.

Thanks for posting Scott. I signed the petition. I had no idea this was going on out there.

can't say, that photo is heartbreaking if those beautiful cats were trapped by some knucklehead this winter.

"Bobcats are being targeted for the value of their pelts in top-dollar markets such as China, Russia and Greece. A premium pelt of heavily spotted white belly fur can earn a trapper more than $600, according to Nathan Brock, who skinned 10 bobcats that he captured in the Joshua Tree area during the hunting season that ended Jan. 31.

Brock, 38, an active-duty Marine stationed at nearby Twentynine Palms Marine Corps Base, acknowledged that one of his traps was set on private property and not on federal Bureau of Land Management grounds, where trapping is legal. The region is a patchwork of private property and BLM land.

"I feel horrible about that," Brock said. "It's my fault for not making sure."

The manufacturer of Brock's trap, Mercer Lawing of Barstow, said critics miss the point. "We love those animals more than the people who are complaining about us trapping them do," Lawing said. "Nathan and I harvest adult male cats and turn loose adult females and kittens."

I'm sure Mr. Brock feels AWFUL!! I'm sure he weeps over his actions.

"We love those animals more than the people who are complaining about us trapping them do,"

What The Fu--??? You love them so much you trap them causing great pain to the cat then kill and skin it so some rich foreigner can flaunt their status by wearing fur? You love the MONEY they bring you by killing them. What a prick.
