Grizzlies are extremely susceptible to being caught in wolf or coyote killing snares. Although there are designated areas and seasons to protect grizzlies from falling victim to snares, these are quite ineffective in protecting bears. Hundreds upon hundreds of wolves are killed every year for a bounty that also causes the by-catch death of grizzly bears and countless other animals. In this new millennium, Canada has returned to the old adage of "shoot, shovel, and shut up."
Canada Goose and Moose Knuckles: Both use fur trim, both charge a hefty price for their luxury jackets ($600 to $1,000), and both are allegedly deceiving consumers about the true nature of the products they're peddling. But the authorities are only taking action against one of them. What gives?

It sends a clear message to those trapping illegally that Toronto does not tolerate this violence. It offers Toronto a clear and swift enforcement tool when/if a situation like the one involving these beavers occurs again.
There are things every Canadian should have on his or her "to do" list. Visiting Sudbury, Ontario on a Saturday night has to be on your list, too. It just has to be. Why?

About 75 metres in, Rob's dog Pippin let out a yelp, and Rob ran towards the sound of her voice. To his horror, he found she had been caught by a Conibear trap placed within 30 feet of the trail (a completely legal act). He fought relentlessly to free her, but could not release the springs. After crying over Pippin's body in the snow for nearly half an hour, he was unable to remove the trap, so he carried her to his vehicle with it still attached. She died in his arms after several minutes of struggle. It took heavy tools and an angle grinder to remove the trap from Pippin's body.
