National Alert: Fantastic News: Court Rules in Favor of Threatened Lynx
Judge says MN Trapping Program Violates ESA

Earlier this week a federal judge ruled that the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is in violation of the Endangered Species Act (ESA) for allowing trappers to set traps and snares that catch, injure, and kill Canada lynx, a protected species. The court ordered the state to take all action necessary to ensure that no further takings of lynx will occur by trapping activities within core lynx habitat herunterladen.

The lawsuit was filed on behalf of Born Free USA united with Animal Protection Institute and the Center for Biological Diversity, after we discovered that Canada lynx have been captured and sometimes seriously injured or killed in traps and snares set for other species.

A similar lawsuit filed by Born Free USA united with API in Maine ended in October 2007 with a judge ordering a ban on certain body-gripping leghold traps, restrictions on the use of “killer-type” traps, and increased reporting structure for incidentally trapped lynx yoyo app herunterladen.
