State Ban on Leg Hold Traps

Del. Kirill Reznik sends this new in his regular correspondence:

One bill in particular that I have received many constituent emails about is HB 831 or local bill MC 922-09. This bill will prohibit the use of leg hold traps in Montgomery County. As I have mentioned before, these traps are an inhumane way to trap animals and I am glad to report that after some strong deabte and a contentious hearing, we voted the bill out of local Delegation with no amendments. I appreciate the heavy constituent input to vote the bill out with no amendments and I am glad that we were able to do so.

No leg traps in the neighborhood, please.
