Crying foul on licence plate fund

Editor: I wholeheartedly agree with Mary Adams’ letter of Feb. 22 (“Trapping foxes goes against intent of wildlife fund”).

I, too, paid the extra $10 for my licence plate believing that the money was going to help conserve and protect our wildlife. I am sickened that the P.E.I. Wildlife Conservation and Protection Fund are licencing trappers to kill our beautiful foxes and send their pelts to China.

What a terrible and hypocritical trick. How sad that this organization perpetrates more killing of our wildlife. Shame on you.

I love the fox and get great comfort and pleasure in knowing at least something in this mad world is doing what it is supposed to do — eat, sleep, make babies and mind its own business. Soon all the land that foxes need on which to live will be gone and then we will be deprived of these beautiful animals.

I applaud WCF for what I deem the better efforts that do not include hunting.

As American poet Gary Snyder said: “Nature is not a place to visit. It is home.” And not only to humans but to all sentient beings.
