If these animals were trapped, they suffered excruciating pain in steel-jaw leg-hold traps for hours or even days. Such traps also catch dogs, cats, songbirds and other animals who either are crippled or killed or who chew off their own feet to escape, only to suffer or die later.

As animal waste falls to the ground through the cage floors, it is washed through the rain into nearby streams and lakes. The nutrients contained in the animals waste can also soak into the soil and contaminate ground water. Unnaturally high level of phosphorus and airregen cause increased algae growth and can kill trees.
