[told in person] We were checking out an old mine near Winnemucca in the King’s River area. We heard a dog screaming and found it caught in a trap. We managed to get the trap off. [ means an animal can be immobilized in agony for as long as 4 days. Several efforts to have this visit time shortened via legislation have failed.]
Nevada law allows trappers 96 hours before they have to visit their traps. This means an animal can endure heinous agony for as long as four days – that is, if the trapper shows up and then kills the animal. TrailSafe efforts to shorten this visitation time were not successful. The national standard is 24 hours – that is, if we have to have trapping at all!
