  1. California bans trapping because its in humane, but allow abortions and let illegal aliens in and take advantage of their illegal status to pay them nothing. Something close to slavery really. Hypocrites probably eat meat and have leather furniture, shoes, and support the cruelty of zoos and captive wild animals.
