An animal advocacy group is providing a $1,000 reward for data that may result in discovering the particular person liable for setting a leg-trap that left a raccoon “mangled” in Abbotsford final month.
Fur-Bearers govt director Lesley Fox stated the raccoon was discovered caught within the leg-trap hanging from a tree within the Mount Lehman space.

She stated the animal repeatedly chewed its paw to flee, leaving wounds so in depth that the animal couldn’t be rehabilitated and needed to be put down.
Fox stated the group believes the entice was set illegally as a result of trapping season doesn’t begin till the center of October.
“Whether they’re legal or not it’s problematic that these devices are still being used first and foremost and that they’re being used in our communities, and with all the other pressures that wildlife are currently experiencing, whether it’s climate change, forest fires, drought, urban sprawl — trapping is animal cruelty that we can stop,” she stated.

“Some people use traps because they believe an animal is a pest or so-called nuisance, other people use traps to obtain animals for their fur pelts — [in] both of those situations, the Fur-Bearers believe that traps are cruel, inhumane and [that] non-lethal alternatives are available.”
If you will have any data, you’re requested to contact the Fur-Bearers, BC SPCA or the province’s Report All Poachers and Polluters line.
Global News has reached out to the province and City of Abbotsford for remark.
