Help us get killing traps out of New Jersey
New Jersey Senate Bill S179 would ban the manufacture, sale, possession, importation, transportation, or use of any trap that is a spring-loaded device that restrains an animal by capturing the foot, leg, or other body part, including an enclosed foothold type trap or any other type trap that uses a jaw, arm, bar, cable, or wire to grasp or pin the animal’s foot, leg, or other body part.
This is an exceptionally strong bill! Please contact your legislators and ask them to support S179/A3110. You can find your legislators here.
