(MA) Urgent Alert! Stop the Legalization of Conibear Traps!

HB200 is still in the Massachusetts Joint Committee on Natural Resources and Agriculture, waiting for action.

This bill would gut the trapping ban that was put in place by the citizens of Massachusetts several years ago by amending the law to read in part "a person shall not use, set, place, maintain, manufacture or possess any traps for the capture of fur-bearing mammals, except for box or cage traps, nets, and traps designed to kill such mammal including common type mouse and rat traps, mole traps, and conibear type or other body gripping straps, as otherwise permitted by law." This bill runs counter to the will of the people and should not be made into law.

It is imperative that Massachusetts residents contact their legislators (legislators can be found at http://www.state.ma.us/legis/citytown.htm ) and ask that they vote NO on HB200 should it come to a vote before the Massachusetts House and or Senate. Also, please contact the following members of the Natural Resources and Agriculture Committee and urge them to vote against the bill.
