I was concerned to read that the city of Vacaville opted to use body-crushing Conibear traps to address conflicts with beavers. These traps are notoriously indiscriminate and pose a serious hazard to nontarget species, including cats and dogs. In fact, research has shown that for every target animal captured at least two other nontarget animals are caught, maimed, or killed.
