The University of Tsukuba CE Science and Maths C1 - Week 8

Hello everyone,
Today we are going to talk about animal trapping. Animal trapping is a controversial topic. Organisations including People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PeTA) campaign against animal trapping. A Japanese celebrity, Aya Sugimoto has participated in PETA's "I'd Rather Go Naked anti-fur campaign. On the other hand, some people depend on animal trapping.

Before we read about trapping, let's study some vocabulary. Please click the link: CE Science and Math C1 Vocabulary.

What do you think of animal trapping. Please post a comment.
See you next week!


  1. I don't like trapping a lot of animals.
    I think human have distroied nature so that the balance of wild animals has changed. We have to think about it seriously.
    I wish that we will find other way to solve about increasing too many animals.

  2. Hi,Michael
    Animal trapping is difficult problem, isn`t it?

    I think that one of the reason various animals have become extinct or been on the verge of extinction because of trapping.
    I don`t care about people who just trap animals for their life,like Inuits. They need to trap animals for their life.However,some trappers want to trap animals for their desire.The more people have their desire ,the more they want to have their desire sometimes.
    I think civilized society have created indiscriminate hunting,but we live in this kind of society.Besides ecosystem is disturbed by this society.
    We are top of ecology,but we have we have to think about the way of trapping to keep a relation with animals.
    I don`t agree to overhunting,but I agree to trapping animals which can keep the relation with animals.A lion hunts an herbivore,but the lion doesn`t hunt animals to destroy the ecosystem.

    See you!
