Democratic congresswoman of New York, Nita Lowey, created and proposed a bill - H.R. 2657 - to ban trapping in the United States. She did this one year ago.
Apparently the bill got hung up in congress, or shot down by lobbyists working for trappers/hunters.
I believe we need to keep encouraging Congresswoman Lowey, not to give up! We have to let her know that we are squarely behind her, and we will contact our own federal representatives (congressmen/women) and urge them to support anti-trapping legislation proposed by Congresswoman Lowey.
Also here is Congresswoman Nita Lowey's facebook link - you can leave her a message of support on her link -
It is not often we find an elected official who is willing to do what is right.
