Action is urgently needed on an important animal protection bill that is likely to be voted on soon in the New Mexico House of Representatives. HB 366 would prohibit the use of steel-jaw leghold and body-gripping traps, strangling snares, and wildlife poisons on public lands. Animals caught in these types of traps or killed with poisons endure unimaginable suffering. These methods are indiscriminate; many nontarget animals also suffer and die as collateral damage, including endangered and threatened species and family pets.
Share our eAlert with family, friends, and co-workers in New Mexico, and encourage them to contact their representative, too. Thank you for all you do for animals!
