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.

Poll Supports TrailSafe Measures

A February, 2017 scientific, impartial poll of Nevada attitudes about trapping  conducted by Remington Research finds:

56% oppose use of traps on public lands
68% support ID on traps
77% support 24-hour trap checks
80% support warning signs
68% support being allowed to move a trap or device that poses risk.


These results are consistent in all four Congressional Districts!!

How to Open a Conibear(tm)-type trap!

 

 

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?

Judy Sturgis went to emergency room with hand injuries from trying to free her dog, Beowulf. The story:

Gary Park also had a trip to the ER. He still has numbness in his hand. The story:

Till the world shall set things right.
