"Trap Free Oregon" is circulating petitions to get on the ballot in 2014 a measure that will ban ALL civilian trapping (with minor exemptions). The group is based out of Bend, Oregon. This is their 3th attempt for such a ban. Their bill requires that the state trap any animal except exempt animals: mice rats gophers moles ground squirrels non-furbearing rodents (undefined). So it'll require the state to trap any tree squirrels, raccoons, possums, nutria, beavers, otters etc which are causing damage to structures, levies, embankments, canals etc. OR By an ODFW 30 day permit AFTER a "publicly available study has been completed (also undefined)". So all the extermination businesses will likely be severely hurt or go under and ODFW will likely end up spending HUNDREDS of THOUSANDS to trap problem animals all over the state. Even for someone who doesn't like trapping this initiative (not I, but for someone on the fence) is HORRIBLY structured and will cost the state with an already lopsided budget loads of money.
