Sm,—Happily for the tortured rabbits there are many who do not agree with Sir Edward Pease that they must be killed by cruel means. To rely on all traps being visited night and morning is fantastic. I have proved this. Under the auspices of the R.S.P.CA the " Sawyer trap" has been invented which kills rabbits instantaneously. It will soon be in the market and will cost the same as the metal-toothed trap, which it is hoped may then be made illegal:—Yours faithfully, HELEN POMEROY.
