Traps on Public Lands: Hidden, Dangerous, Destructive
Did you know that traps are legal on all public lands in New Mexico?
Despite the majority of all New Mexico voters wanting traps banned from public lands, they remain present and inflict damage on citizens, pets, and wildlife, including the endangered Mexican wolf.
You are cordially invited to New Mexico's "The Trouble with Trapping" road show hosted by WildEarth Guardians, the Sierra Club Rio Grande Chapter, Animal Protection of New Mexico, and Born Free USA.

Thousands of bobcats are trapped every year in New Mexico simply because they have gorgeous fur coats.
New Mexicans value the wildlife that still roams the state's deserts,
grasslands, and forests. In fact, 63% of New Mexican voters believe that
traps should be restricted or abolished on public land. Public lands
and wildlife belong to us all, yet these vicious devices diminish and
threaten these values. Join the movement to ban traps on public lands in
