Anti-Trapping Activists Pull Back, Re-Grouping For 2016

By Jim McCoy Thu 26th December Newsanti-trapping
A group that wants to ban most commercial and sport trapping in Oregon says it will back off plans for a 2014 ballot initiative and work on an updated proposal for the 2016 election. Leaders of Bend-based TrapFree Oregon told the Mail Tribune (http://bit.ly/K6bKgp) that recent polling showed Oregonians are strongly against restrictions on private lands. So it will focus on curbing the fur trade on public lands. Christopher Baker of Bend was one of the petitioners who filed a referendum this fall. Baker says they decided to back off before hiring signature gatherers.
