Two Terms Needing New Definitions
My latest journal article has recently been published. It covers two terms (live trap and the lethal/non-lethal control dichotomy) that wildlife control operators and wildlife damage management specialist need to redefine in order to be scientifically accurate and to reduce the advantage to the animal rights protest industry.
