Wildlife on public lands in New Mexico soon to be safe from Trappers

Roxy’s Law bans traps, snares, and poisons on public lands and it’s on the way to the desk of Governor Michelle Grisham for her signature!

Senate Bill 32 – called “Roxy’s Law” in memory of a cattle dog who died in a neck snare on public land is on the way to Governor Michelle Grisham’s desk to be signed into law.

For over a decade there has been a battle to get trapping devices off of public lands in New Mexico. We are thrilled to see this tireless

work finally pay off. Once signed into law, this bill will make our public lands in New Mexico safer for wildlife, people, and pets.

We couldn’t have done it without you! Thank you for all your support!

Our thanks also go out to the many organizations in the TrapFree New Mexico coalition:

WildEarth Guardians, Rio Grande Chapter of Sierra Club, Animal Protection Voters, Southwest Environmental Center, New Mexico Wild, Project Coyote, Center for Biological Diversity, Conservation Voters in New Mexico, Endangered Species Coalition, Amigos Bravos, Defenders of Wildlife, and Sandia Mountain Bearwatch.

We are so grateful for everyone’s hard work.
