Local Trappers Conduct Activities Without Regard to Other Trail Users

Letters / Anchorage Daily News / April 20, 2005

Traps set along roads and trails in the greater Anchorage area are a public safety hazard. The wilderness around Anchorage is a "suburban" wilderness; its users are members of a community of thousands of outdoor enthusiasts.

Unfortunately, local trappers seem to think they can conduct their activities without regard to those with whom they share the trail. If they are unwilling to clearly mark the location of their traps to help ensure the safety of their neighbors' pets and children, they give the rest of the public no reasonable alternative than to demand their trapping privileges be revoked.
