2005 told in person: I was jogging, which I do frequently, at Rancho San Rafael. There was a very large trap set under a tree near the water. I narrowly escaped stepping in it. I told the park ranger who said traps were set there frequently. [Rancho San Rafael is a Washoe County owned property. It is very heavily used by the public for multi purposes]

Since passage of SB364, law now requires trapper ID or NDOW registration number on all traps set on public land. And the public has the right to disturb a trap that poses obvious risk.

SB364 became law July 1, 2017. One measure requires NDOW (Nevada Department of Wildlife) to work with land management agencies to post warning signs where traps may be set
