By Cassie Schirm: Anchorage Assembly passes amended trapping ordinance
“I would not advise sending the ordinance as written, just from my experience with the Board of Game, it definitely is a sleeves rolled up, kind of show us the data, examine all sides, into the weeds kind of process,” said Sarah Taylor. “And it truly values stakeholder engagement. I think if anyone is concerned about the ordinance being submitted to that level of review, I’d say that’s reason enough to reject it and get to work.”
Some of them disagreed with the 50-yard rule, saying they will lose a lot of land on which to trap.
Trapper Tom Lessard said it’s not about the distance. He’s upset about the process and thinks things can be done better — in collaboration with the Board of Game and trapping groups.
For Keri Gardner, who spoke in support of the ordinance, she’s worried about the safety of her search dogs while on rescue missions in the Municipality of Anchorage.
“At least two members of Alaska Search and Rescue Dogs have had dogs caught in traps or snares,” said Gardner. “I have also had a dog caught in a trap and being a woman with relatively weak hands, I am unable to open a trap by myself.”
