A. 1105/S. 3563: Longer Trap Check Intervals [2013-14]

Born Free USA Position: OPPOSE

Update: This bill failed to pass before the session ended.

Bill Description:
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.
