BILL NUMBER:S2664

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the environmental conservation law, in relation to signage at
entry points to municipally owned property where trapping is allowed

PURPOSE:
This bill will require municipalities that allow hunting,
fishing or trapping on their property to notify users of the property
that hunting, fishing or trapping may occur in season and to take
appropriate precautions.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
The bill amends section 11-1101 of the
Environmental Conservation Law by adding a new subdivision 13 that
requires posted signs on municipal property where hunting, fishing or
trapping is allowed to notify users that such hunting, fishing or
trapping occurs in season.

There are no posting requirements under current law

JUSTIFICATION:
In recent years, there have been instances of dogs,
while on a walk with their owners, getting caught in legally set
traps. The bill would protect family pets from tragic encounters with
traps in municipal multi-use areas.

S.5306 of 2007/08; Passed Assembly in 2008
