New York Legislation
Born Free USA Position: OPPOSE
Update: This bill passed the NY Senate on 6/11/14, and was referred to the Assembly Enviromental Conservation Committee.
Exempts traps set in water and traps in the Northern Zone from the requirement that they be visited once every 24 hours; such traps shall be visited once every 48 hours or a shorter interval as determined by the department of environmental conservation.
Check out our trapping page for info on why this method of hunting is so merciless. Extending the amount of time an animal must languish in a trap, experiencing excruciating pain and panic, is cruel.
New York residents, call and email your state assemblymember, and urge him/her to oppose this brutal bill!
