Our Trap Law Reform Bill Signed into Law
June 3, 2017, Governor Sandoval Signed SB364. As amended, we now have mandatory trap registration/ID; legal protection for persons moving or disturbing traps that create an immediate risk to persons or companion animals; and a mandate for warning signs to be posted on public lands.
Abundant thanks to all who sent emails, testified and supported this effort.
The Department of Wildlife will write regulations detailing how these provisions will be met. We remain vigilant throughout this process to be sure our intention is carried out.

Incident Reports humans caught in traps! Told to TrailSafe in person. Including a local hiker caught by his own leg in a snare trap in March in Griffith Canyon, a popular local hiking trail. Another case: a hiker caught in a snare trap near Gardnerville.
So the claim humans don't get trapped is inaccurate no matter how trappers try to minimize. How many people trapped and injured are too many?
