Legislation to stop inhumane trapping practices

Submitted By Andrew LaMar

The California state Assembly approved legislation by Senate Majority Leader Ellen M. Corbett (D-San Leandro) to provide consumer protection for wildlife trapping and prohibit the most inhumane trapping practices, on August 23, 2012.

Senate Bill 1480 directs the state Department of Fish and Game to maintain a list of licensed trappers on its website, requires trappers to provide a written contract to consumers and outlaws the most heinous and cruel methods of animal killing.
