What We've Been Up To...

HOORAY FOR NEW PALTZ:


New Paltz Town Board following vote.

Both the New Paltz Village and New Paltz Town Boards have passed memorializing resolutions supporting the Home Rule Trapping Bill in the NYS Legislature. The Village’s resolution reads as follows:

RESOLUTION OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF THE VILLAGE OF NEW PALTZ MEMORIALIZING THE BOARD’S POSITION TO THE TWO HOUSES OF THE STATE LEGISLATURE SUPPORTING PROPOSED LEGISLATION THAT WOULD ALLOW COUNTY AND/OR MUNICIPAL CONTROL OF TRAPPING

WHEREAS, the Village of New Paltz has experienced incidents in trapping of wildlife that have been harmful and posed a danger to domesticated animals and children due to the location and manner of said trapping; and

WHEREAS, said trapping apparently was within the rules, regulations, and guidelines enforced by the State Department of Environmental Conservation, and

WHEREAS, there exists a bill currently being considered by the NY State Legislature that would provide that each county within the State could limit, restrict, or prohibit trapping within its local municipal limits and provides that municipalities may do so by local law or ordinance.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT

RESOLVED, that the Village Board of the Village of New Paltz in regular session duly convened does hereby memorialize the Board’s position to the Legislature of the State of New York that it fully supports New York Senate Bill 2901 (2003) introduced by Senator Frank Padavan and such companion legislation as may exist in the Assembly of the State of New York.

BY ORDER OF THE VILLAGE BOARD OF THE VILLAGE OF NEW PALTZ, NY

Dated: September 22, 2003 Jean Gallucci, Village Clerk

Please ask your boards to pass similar resolutions and send them to the state representatives. Kindly forward copies to us for the upcoming session.

Justice for Sweet Sadie Continues. Sadie was killed by trappers who were trapping beavers on a privately owned wetland property. The owners admitted they were trying to dry it up to win approvals for future development. We are grateful to Del Seligman, Esq. and her organization Animal Advocates Inc for handling the case pro bono. Del is always there for the animals.

Wildlife Watch Emergency Hotline


Lauren Marcus, on the phone.

Saw much activity during the summer and early fall. Lauren Marcus has been fielding the calls for Wildlife Watch that come from several different NY Counties and networking with wildlife rehabilitators to handle the many situations that came in. Wildlife Watch helps a wide range of wildlife via the hotline who would otherwise be left to die without help. We are eternally grateful to Marilyn Leybra for going beyond what seems humanly possible to help wildlife in distress.
