NEW MEXICO
Trapping ban clears first legislative hurdle
Published: Wednesday, February 3, 2021
Legislation to prohibit traps, snares and wildlife poisons from being used on public lands across New Mexico cleared its first legislative hurdle yesterday.

Environmentalists and animal advocacy groups testified on behalf of the measure during a Senate committee meeting yesterday, saying New Mexico needs to join neighboring states and ban what they described as a cruel and outdated practice.

Rural residents and wildlife conservation officers said trapping remains an important tool for managing wildlife and protecting livestock. They pointed to changes adopted last year by the state Game Commission after a lengthy public process, saying lawmakers should give the trapping rules a chance to work before imposing a sweeping ban.

Under the rules, trappers have to complete an education course, and restrictions were imposed on setting traps and snares around designated trailheads and on select tracts of public lands in New Mexico.

Designed largely to reduce the hazard of traps to hikers and their dogs, the prohibitions include mountainous areas east of Albuquerque, along with swaths of national forest along highways leading to ski areas near Santa Fe and Taos. In the southern part of the state, it includes the eastern portion of the Organ Mountain-Desert Peaks National Monument.

"The concerns that have been expressed over the years by the Legislature and by members of the urban public have actually already been resolved," said Kerrie Cox Romero with the New Mexico Council of Outfitters and Guides. "This bill provides no recognition of that effort."

Cox Romero said much of the land that would be affected by the bill is remote and rarely sees human activity other than trappers.

Supporters of the legislation argued that several pet dogs have been injured despite last year's rule changes and that more needs to be done to ensure public safety given New Mexico's push to increase outdoor recreation.

Kevin Bixby, executive director of the Southwest Environmental Center in Las Cruces, said he was hiking over the weekend and saw many others doing the same.

"Traps on public lands pose a threat to our members and all public land users," he told lawmakers. "They're like land mines basically waiting to harm whatever unfortunate creature happens to step on them whether it's a wild animal or pet dog or a horse carrying a rider or, God forbid, a human being."

Supporters also raised concerns about traps hampering efforts in southwestern New Mexico to restore the endangered Mexican gray wolf.

Jessica Johnson, chief government affairs officer for Animal Protection Voters, said there was an effort to consider the concerns of ranchers and sportsmen when drafting the legislation, and exceptions were included for private and tribal land. The bill also would allow federal and state wildlife managers to use nonlethal traps to deal with problem predators.

Violating provisions of the proposed trapping ban would amount to a misdemeanor.

The measure must be considered by another committee before reaching the full Senate for a vote. Susan Montoya Bryan, Associated Press

How are new mexicans supposed to trust the new mexico legislative process when bills that affect peoples livelyhoods way of life and science based wildlife managemet are scheduled in comitee hearings with less then 24 hours of notice to the public?
a hour and a half before the deadline to register for public comment?
This throws transparency and trust between state legislators and the public out the window.
According to page 21 of the legislative handbook under senate rules
comitee meetings must be posted 24 hours
Before they are heard
Sb32 was posted at 3:23 pm march 4th and is first on the agenda in senate judiciary at 135 pm march 5th

How is this acceptable?

Pleasecontact the commitee members and ask why is the chair Joseph cervantes breaking the rules?

Joseph Cervantes - (D)

hearing in senate Judiciary Committee tomorrow Comitee starts at 1:35 pm March 5 on SB32 trapping bill please call and email Senate Judiciary Committee
