Salt Lake City -- The amount of time between when a trapper sets a non-lethal trap, and when he has to check it again, won’t change in Utah.
On Jan. 4, the Utah Wildlife Board voted 4-2 to keep a requirement that trappers must check their non-lethal foothold traps within 48 hours of setting them.
The Division of Wildlife Resources opposed lengthening the time past 48 hours. And four of Utah’s five Regional Advisory Councils also voted against lengthening the time.
