Trap Registration Regulation Approved
SB364 mandates trappers to either place their name and address on each trap, snare or other device used on public land, or else to apply for a registration number from the NV Dept. of Wildlife (NDOW) and to place this number on each device.
The regulation spelling out how NDOW will enact this mandate was approved by the Legislative Commission August 30, 2018. Now the law is fully in effect. If you see any trapping devices on public land, check to see if they have the required identification. If not, they are in violation.
Thank you to all who sent emails, attended the hearing, and supported this long effort!
Warning Signs on Public Lands
Our law, SB364, passed July, 2017. One measure requires warning signs to be posted on public lands where trapping might occur. We are working on this and are much encouraged. The United States Forest Service is now finalizing notices which will be posted at kiosks and trailheads statewide in March, 2019. Many thanks to USFS from us at TrailSafe and from Nevada pets, hikers, and wildlife!
Our Trap Law Reform Bill Signed into Law
June 3, 2017, Governor Sandoval signed SB364. As amended, we now have mandatory trap registration/ID; legal protection for persons moving or disturbing traps that create an immediate risk to persons or companion animals; and a mandate for warning signs to be posted on public lands.
Abundant thanks to all who sent emails, testified and supported this effort.
