Cornish consistently votes against regulating lethal body grip traps that are killing our dogs. He paints it as poor trappers fighting for their heritage against antis who are trying to destroy their way of life. (Fact: our organization has never taken the position of banning trapping or even the traps that are killing dogs. Our goal is to regulate them so that dogs cannot reach them.)

He recently voted against an amendment (A33) to the environment omnibus bill that would require trappers to get permission before trapping on unposted land. He said our current system of allowing trappers to set traps including dog killing traps on unposted land is working well. He has also told dog owners that they need to accept their dogs being killed in recklessly set (but legal) body grip traps.
