Senate Bill 32, better known as Roxy’s Law and formally as the Wildlife Conservation and Public Safety Act, which would ban trapping on public lands. This is one of the perennial bills that finally made it to the governor’s desk this session. It was close, too. After SB 32 made it through the Senate by a wide margin, the legislation cleared the House by only one vote, 35-34. The legislation forbids traps, but also snares and poisons; it was named after a beloved dog, Roxy, who died after being caught in a snare in 2018 while hiking with her owner.
