Residents Plan to Continue Protest against the Arcadia City Council’s coyote trapping and killing program with 900 signatures

Organizers will be presenting petitions with over 900 signatures of Arcadia residents urging an immediate moratorium on the trapping program and to place the issue on the agenda for a full public hearing at next Tuesday’s, Jan.4, council meeting at 7pm. Animal advocates and activists have been working for over 4 months to gather these signatures and now feel the time is right for an Arcadia resident to present them to the council.
There is a significant number of residents who are opposed to what the council has done and want it stopped now. “It is a waste of taxpayer’s money, ineffective, as well as cruel and inhumane. They have now been trapping and killing for 4 1/2 months and the breeding season is currently taking place with pups being born in the spring. We have given them plenty of time to cancel the contract with APM. They always said this was a short term program and not a long term solution and that education is the key but will not tell us what is their exit strategy.” said Bonnie Barron who has been one of the more vocal opponents to ythe city’s trapping program.
