Lawsuit aims to end commercial fur trapping in California

1 post in this topic

Back in 2015,  @fictionauthor started a topic encouraging Safaritalkers to sign a petition to ban Bobcat trapping in California.  Several of us did so, and petitions and other public outcry helped convince the California legislature to band Bobcat trapping.

 

Now conservation groups are suing the state to observe state law and make the fees for trapping licenses high enough to cover the costs of the state regulating the fur trapping trade.  Given the low number of trappers compared to the past, this would make the cost of trapping licenses prohibitive and thus end the industry in California.  

An article on the subject is here:
