The famous SCI FI novel, "Childhoods End" by Arthur C. Clarke concerns the arrival of aliens known as Overlords who will prepare the human race for its next jump in evolution.  The Overlords would never approach a civilization unless it showed respect and love for the other lesser species on their Planet.

The actions of Governor Susana Martinez and State Land Commissioner Aubrey Dunn in allowing the existence of leg hold traps to obliterate mountain lions and other wildlife is just too much believe.  This is the most cruel and inhumane action anyone could take against native wildlife.  These two officials, both extreme right wing republicans, have shown their true selves in allowing such actions.  We would fail to pass any test by the Overlords for advancement.

They may have a lot of people fooled into thinking they are acceptable public officials, but for many of us who love nature and decency, we know that they are totally lacking in morality.

Ok, then said...

I cannot understand why this was allowed, despite public objections.
It is horrible; leg hold or snap traps are one of the cruelest ways to kill any creature.
