If I'm trapping legally, how can anyone say I'm doing anything wrong?

This question comes up most often in the form of a statement like "He was trapping legally; he didn't do anything wrong." 

This statement is most often made after the trapper has done something terribly wrong to an animal--probably not on purpose, but more likely due to lack of knowledge, lack of skill, haste, or carelessness.

Check out MN Trapping Ethics, think about it, and you'll probably come up with an answer to the question: "If I'm trapping legally, how can anyone say I'm doing anything wrong?"
