I want to make those that have not been in attendance and or able to see things of recent, but a resurgence towards banning and regulating trapping is on the rise. Recently, we Trappers were able to get the attention of the Burrough Assembly and to strike the Trapping regulations from the ordinance proposed by the Animal Control Board. But, this is not the time to lower our Guard, a group calling themselves the Alaska Safe Trails is garnering support from a few recent events regarding an eagle incident in Juneau, and closer to home a dog snared in the area of 49th State St behind the dump.  They have a FaceBook page by their title.
  Folks, we have to be smart where we trap, the high use areas are tricky to be trapping, and no matter that a leash law is in place, it seems that the Animal Control Officer doesn't want to enforce that even when ts obvious the animals are off leash when the incidents occur.
  A fellow trapper has reported that he had traps stolen and someone sprayed his bait set with bear spray. He has an idea that it was a musher due to the signs in the area. Report these incidents to Troopers and Fish & Game. 
  Trap Smart, don't give them ammo to use against us.

Round 2, AST was at it again, this time with the State Parks Shocked, well, after a joint venture with ATA, we have worked at getting an additional information poster out to most of the high use trailheads around the Palmer and Wasilla areas.
AWARENESS...this is what we took to the Citizens Advisory Board of the State Parks and had an overwhelming positive responce to our actions. It was unanimously agreed by the Board that no action to ban or limit trapping would be sought and that they would also up their awareness campaign about shared use and trapping on the trails in their contolled areas especially during regulatory trapping seasons.
