Snaring: Is this any way to do game management?

from Mauna Kea Recreational Users Group

Since the early 1990′s DLNR has been using snares to eradicate the wild pig in the forests of Hawaii. Denying that the pig as a cultural tradition in the forest and intent on eliminating it, DLNR and its partners like The Nature Conservancy, Volcanoes National Park and Hakalau Bird Refuge continue to kill pigs by snaring. MKRUG would like to hear experiences from the people of the forest about what snaring is about. Tell us your story with snares.

Caution! The following images are very graphic and may be extremely upsetting to many.
