New law bans body-gripping traps

Published 12/23/08

The Guelph (Ontario, Canada) City council unanimously approved a bylaw banning body-gripping traps, moving to informally name it Harper's bylaw after the Jack Russell terrier that suffocated in a trap on industrial lands. Harper died in his owner's arms in December 2006 with his head trapped in a Conibear body-gripping trap. This spurred the community to action and motivated council to direct a committee and staff to draft the ban. ... The bylaw bans all body-gripping traps, which have the intention to kill.
