Fur Trapping


This video is not currently available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Trappers in Oregon catch coyotes, fox, bobcat, muskrat, beaver and other animals and sell their pelts. Animal rights activists deplore trapping which they say is cruel. But the state relies on trappers to keep populations in check.

First Broadcast: 1991
Producer: Eric Cane
