Stop Cruel Wildlife ‘Gassing’ by Hunters

Target: T. Dan Friedkin, Chairman of Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission

Goal: Ban the cruel trapping technique known as gassing.

Gassing is a technique used by trappers in order to lure animals out of their dens and burrows. Trappers will use gasoline or other noxious chemicals to force animals out of their dens and burrows so they can be captured.

Gassing can cause serious respiratory injuries, burns and even death. It also introduces poisonous chemicals to the environment and can lead to injury or death in non-targeted species including endangered species. Then, the helpless babies left behind often die without their mothers’ help and protection.

Sign this petition and demand that Texas ban the cruel practice of gassing.


Dear Chairman Friedkin,

Your department will soon be meeting to discuss current issues and activity associated with Texas’ wildlife and lands. Gassing was an issue on the agenda but it has recently been removed. Gassing is incredibly cruel, and it is time to consider banning this practice.

Gassing is a technique trappers use to force animals out of their dens and burrows. Gasoline or other noxious chemicals are typically used. Gassing can cause serious injuries including burns, respiratory problems and even death. It affects all kinds of wildlife including non-target species and endangered species. It leaves babies alone and helpless without their mothers, which usually leads to their deaths as well.

Please put an end to this cruel practice. Not only is it incredibly inhumane but it is also bad for our precious and delicate environment.

    What is there to be said about these bastard hunters anyway! And then what can you say about a state that allows this despicable activity? But then they’re just animals, right??? That’s what they always say: “well – they’re just animals” – – –

  5. Linda Amundson says:

    Trappers are among the absolute lowest forms of humans. Trapping, by its nature, is extremely cruel. There is a derangement in anyone who traps for a living, so the law must protect their victims and intended victims. Stop at least this one cruel method of the many cruel methods trappers use. Humans are getting more disgusting every day. We do not own the earth or other species and need to stop acting like it. We’re also far from being the most superior species on the planet, though we are the cruelest and greediest species. Time to make some amends.

  6. You animal torturing psychopathic degenerate monsters. Why don’t you gas yourselves and leave the innocent animal alone.
    Down with all you monsters

  9. 서명합니다

  10. Man has become monstrous. That’s the bottom line, for he thinks nothing of inflicting pain on species other than himself. This is evil beyond words, but he is too thick-skulled to realize it. Man is a very sick animal and acts accordingly That’s why he elected a monster for president.

  11. Gas those people cruel bastards the president gassed too stop this cruelty now.

  12. So sick and ashamed of the human race.

  13. No brainer . This should be outlawed.

  14. WOW aren’t these ball less macho men feeling great with this cruelty….they have noooooo power at HOMECOMING…so somehow they want to feel better….and the defensless animals feel that brunt……hope these hunters get roasted in life….

  15. This is beyond ruthless, cruel & unconscionable — to do this to our innocent wildlife, who have every RIGHT to live, NOT suffer & NOT be murdered — Where’s the thinking? — Where’s the rationality? — Where’s the compassion? — Where’s the morality? — Where’s the mercy? — HOW COULD YOU allow this! — these hunters must be held accountable — the penalties & punishment must be severe — SOCIETY MUST ALLOW THESE BRUTAL CRIMES ON ANIMALS.
