Every year, millions of animals are trapped and killed in the United States for the fur trade and by Wildlife Services, a notorious arm of the US government that is a continuous, taxpayer-funded, wildlife killing spree at the behest of the livestock industry. Millions more are accidentally caught in traps set for other species. Learn about this outrageous and barbaric practice so you can help end it!
Cull of the Wild examines the legacy of the trapping industry in America today through the point of view of the trapper and his victim. It has become an invaluable tool to grassroots activist organizations and has been distributed to members of Congress to bring legal reform.
CULL OF THE WILD provides heart-provoking information to a world that must act now. Animals and the future are relying upon our passion, compassion, and commitment to end this senseless, destructive history.

An excellent documentary that exposes the realities of hunting and trapping animals for fur, “wildlife management,” and “nuisance control.” Including interviews with trappers, supportive legislators, and wildlife biologists, the video is a wonderful educational tool.
