Identification - New York
U.S. Sportsmen's Alliance, a special interest group representing
wild animal killers across the United States, is pushing a bill
that would remove the requirement that trappers list their name
and address on each trap they set. Senate Bill 1068
would instead require that traps bear identification numbers
assigned to the trapper. Introduced by Senator James Wright,
the bill passed both the Senate and Assembly unanimously.
YOU MUST DO
York Residents should contact Governor Pataki immediately and
ask that he veto this anti-animal legislation. The Governor
can be reached at (518) 474-8390.
hunters are required to carry identification and their hunting
licenses with them as they hunt, trappers should be required
to publicly identify their traps as they are laid out.
legislation makes it harder to identify people who are trapping
illegally (out of season, on private property, etc.) and will
cause law enforcement to use more financial resources to track
down rogue trappers. In a time when New York faces a budget
crisis, this is not a wise expenditure of dollars.
