WATCH: Wildlife advocacy group issues warning after baby skunk trapped in Delta

A wildlife advocacy group has a warning about the use of traps to capture unwanted critters in your backyard.

The Association for the Protection of Fur-Bearing Animals released a video of a young female skunk caught in a trap in Delta.

The traps are designed to capture a wandering animal and snap its neck.

That did not happen in this case.

The animal was rescued and is expected to make a full recovery.

The association says this recent incident is an alarming trend and they want the Minister of Forests, Lands and Natural Resources Steve Thomson to take action.
