Bethel Trap problems.
Back to wildlife blogging, The Tundra Drums has an article on a recent spate of trap sabotage in the Bethel area. These incidents are often people with an axe to grid with one person, however, more than one trapper is affected. For example, legal trappers often have difficulty in the South Central when the ADN reposts stories about pet by-catch like this recent one. However, it appears this is a continuing issue, and not a knee-jerk reaction to a story (which tends to be limited). Finally, it could be someone on a high horse who's got it in their head to monkeywrench. While it's not typical for people out in the bush to suddenly go on an `animal-rights` crusade, it's not unheard of.
