Petition To Ban Animal Trapping

Updated: Monday, January 28 2013, 07:34 PM EST

An online petition is circling the internet, calling for lawmakers to prevent animal trapping in Polk County. 

Emmy Summers started the petition called, Citizens for NO Trapping in Polk County.  The petition comes on the heels of a resolution by Polk County Commissioners.  If the resolution is approved by state lawmakers, it would overturn a current law banning trapping in the county. 

Some citizens say there is a coyote and beaver problem in the county, and traps are the most humane solution to the problem.  It's unknown at this time how many of the more than 7,000 signatures on the petition, come from Polk County. 

The approved resoluton was sent to state senators to sponsor.
