Trapping Oral History Initiative Transcripts

   
 

Oral history is a method of collecting historical information through recorded interviews. It is not intended to present the final, verified, or complete narrative of events. It is a spoken account and reflects the personal opinion of the interviewee in response to questioning, and, as such, it is partisan, deeply involved, and irreplaceable.

The following interview transcripts from the Wildlife Services Trapping Oral History Initiative do not represent the policy, views, or official history of the Federal government or the USDA/APHIS Wildlife Services program. The Wildlife Services program respects and realizes that trapping is a sensitive issue for many people.

For more information about the Wildlife Services' Trapping Oral History Initiative, please contact nwrc@aphis.usda.gov.
