“A riveting new eco-thriller about USDA’s Wildlife Services” – Tom Knudson, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, Center for Investigative Reporting
“The Trap is not only an engrossing page turner eco-thriller, but it is a carefully researched and meticulously accurate portrayal of the USDA’S “Wildlife Services” predator control program … Lamont leaves us with hope that with further exposure, this agency and it’s unconscionable treatment of North America’s wildlife can be changed.” – Camilla Fox, Founder and Executive Director, Project Coyote
“The twists in the plot will leave you both shocked and hopeful.” – Paul Shapiro, Vice President Farm Animal Proection, HSUS
The Trap was set in motion by a story told to me by Anja Heister of In Defense of Animals. She and her partner were cross-country skiing one day and spotted a marten caught in a brutal neck snare. The marten was still alive, and after a struggle they were able to save her. They watched as the marten ran to freedom, but not before stopping and turning back to look at them – as if to say thank you.
