BANGOR DAILY NEWS has a rigged poll asking people to vote on this issue! I can't post the link because I use firefox browser.
Doesn't matter how many "NO" votes go in, the percentages go the other way.
This is BULLSHIT and BDNews needs to be exposed!

This is why I don't buy newspapers, because they are all owned by liberals 'creating' news the way they see it instead of REPORTING the news in facts!

I just went in and voted AGAIN, three times in a row. The "no" column had 940 but the "yes" column advanced by my three votes!
IT'S RIGGED!

BANGOR DAILY NEWS ARE LIARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A NO vote produces a yes result! period.

I voted once today. I just went there to vote again. I first wrote down the totals and then tried to vote and nothing registered.
Not that I am taking sides in this but before I can raise the roof, I need some better results.
Here's part of the problem. When I voted a second time it didn't register, which it isn't supposed to do. You guys are saying when you voted it added some to the "yes" side. It may be rigged but there is a possibility that the software it such that things update at odd times - doubtful but I'm trying to find answers.
Geez, I would love to prove that this thing was deliberately rigged.
If any of you can get others to go there and vote, but first document the numbers before voting and after voting, write down times, etc. then let me know.
I will contact the editor and raise some hell.

The poll worked for me. When I tried it in a second browser the cookie must have caught it. I wasn't able to vote twice.

Here's my comment:

People who have no clue about life here have no right to judge anything we do. Have any of you who think this is all about fur taken into consideration the rest of the story? How about the kind of damage many of these animals cause? Raccoons, fishers, coyotes and bobcats are predators that cause damage on farms and to pets. How about the beaver that flood roads and restrict access to and from homes, schools and jobs? They run up our road expenses when roads are damaged and culverts are dammed. Look around you folks, there's more to this than a winter coat. Take some time to educate yourselves instead of showing your ignorance.

I tried to upload a photo of the suffering caused by raccoons but there's a system error that won't allow the upload to complete. Have you ever seen what happens when a raccoon pulls the legs of young rabbits through their cages and eats them? How about headless birds? Raided song bird nests? I can also show you what happens when a starving bobcat happens upon a farm where children are playing in the snow. There are thousands of acres around me. When predator numbers build up so high that they're in my barn in February because there aren't enough small wild animals to go around, I have to do what's necessary to protect my livestock. When that means calling in hunters and trappers during very well regulated seasons, that's what I do. It's much kinder to trap an over abundance of animals than to sentence them to a frigid winter of slow starvation in deep snow. Trappers check their lines daily. A short time in a leg hold trap and a merciful bullet to the brain is much more humane than what the bobcats went through here a few winters ago. You might change your mind and think so when you look out your window to find one sitting in your driveway waiting for your cat to be its next meal.

Are you familiar with the dozens of deer coyotes chased into a lake and drowned two winters ago? That wasn't in any way kind to the deer.

Someone asked: THESE TRAPS SHOULD BE BANNED. WHAT HAPPENS IF A CHILD GETS CAUGHT IN IT? We watch our children. We do not let them out to play on trap lines in the woods. Have you ever stepped on a trap? Our feet are much larger than an animal's foot. It's startling but it doesn't hurt because it doesn't spring closed. And, when's the last time you heard of this happening? Let's deal in facts, not hypothetical what ifs.

Ignorance isn't bliss. It's annoying.
