Why do trappers prefer to use body-gripping traps?

  • Body-gripping traps--when they kill quickly as they're designed to do--don't leave animals to suffer for so long, alive in the trap.
  • They save work: in Minnesota, a trapper is only required to check a body-gripping trap once every three days (not daily, as for restraining traps).
