    Response I received,


    Dear Mr.B

    Thank youfor contacting me regarding bill S-2538, which prohibits the use of snares inthe trapping of wildlife.

    You raisesome valid points regarding the consequences of banning snares. As thereis currently no Assembly version of this bill, I will be sure to keep youropposition in mind should an Assembly bill be introduced in the future.

    Sincerely,

    Jack

    Subject: I oppose Senate Bill s2538


    Senate Bill S2538was introduced on October 27, 2014 to the Senate Environment and EnergyCommittee by sponsors Senator Joseph F. Vitale and Senator Linda R. Greenstein.This bill would effectively eliminate a sound wildlife management tool that hasproven effective in the control of predators in the State of New Jersey. Istand behind the over 1500 trappers as a sportswomen of this state. We arevehemently opposed to this legislation for many reasons. If this passes, theonly tool available to control k-9 predators in this state will be madeillegal. Snares have been safely and effectively used in this state forfurbearer management for over 30 years. They have deployed by NJ DF&Wtrained trappers for literally millions and millions of trap night with virtuallyno conflict with non-trappers.

    Other reasons theproposed Bill S2538 will be bad for all residents of New Jersey is propertydamage, as well as damage to crops and livestock statewide. This would resultin economic hardship for many. Also, trapping is responsible for over a milliondollars per year in New Jersey through licenses sales (state revenue), retailsales (equipment, gasoline, clothing etc.) and fur sales.

    Last, but notleast, the snare is the only effective tool to control top predators, such ascoyote in New Jersey. Coyote populations are rebounding in the state thehighest levels anyone alive has been witness to. This year alone there were atleast two reported coyote attacks on humans. The NJ DF&W conducts about sixclasses per year with an average of 50-60 attendees per class. I urge you toconsult the NJ DF&W furbearer management team for any questions you mayhave on these issues. Please do not disregard sound management principles andtechniques proven safe for the ANTI-trapping/hunting agenda.

    It was discussed at the Essex county federation meeting in January and confirmed by our A CO. It's real and intended to end trapping in NJ.
