Help us pass the bills that will protect your dog

Update 5/8/2014: the 2013-2014 body grip trapping bill HF (456 / SF 452) was not heard in committee this year, so next year we'll be working with a new one.

As in the past, even if the bill doesn't get a committee hearing next year, in can be offered as an amendment to the Game & Fish Bill on the Senate floor and House floor. Of course, we prefer to go through the committee process for discussion and approval, but if necessary, we'll go direct to the legislature. If we need to do that, we'll ask you to Find Your MN Legislators (MN Representative and MN Senator) and ask for two things:
  1. Please encourage the body grip trapping bill authors (Representative John Ward and Senator Chuck Wiger) to offer the bill as an amendment to the Game & Fish Bill.

  2. Please vote for a body grip trapping amendment to the Game & Fish Bill.
