BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1.    Subdivision  5  of section 11-1101 of the environmental
conservation law is amended to read as follows:
  5. Except as provided in subdivision 1 or 2 of section 11-0523 OF THIS
ARTICLE with respect to destructive and  menacing  wildlife,  no  person
shall (a) set or use a trap of the leg-gripping type having teeth in the

RESTRICTING WHEN THE CAPTURED ANIMAL STOPS PULLING;
  (3)  A  DEER  STOP IS A DEVICE INCORPORATED INTO THE LOOP OF THE CABLE
RESTRAINT THAT KEEPS THE CABLE RESTRAINT FROM CLOSING BEYOND A SPECIFIED
CIRCUMFERENCE TO ALLOW DEER THAT MAY ENCOUNTER THE RESTRAINT TO  ESCAPE;
AND
  (4)  A  BREAK  AWAY  DEVICE  ALLOWS THE LOOP OF THE CABLE RESTRAINT TO
BREAK OPEN WHEN A SPECIFIED AMOUNT OF FORCE IS APPLIED.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
