Bend, Oregon – The Bend based group, TrapFree Oregon says unfavorable polling has prompted it to delay a ballot initiative for two years. It was going to try to  get a ban on most sport and commercial trapping on state and public lands on next year’s ballot. The group’s Christopher Baker tells The Medford Mail Tribune a poll showed  the proposed ban on  private land had support in Portland. But he says it was strongly opposed elsewhere in the state.

TrapFree Oregon decided to back off from its 2014 effort before it spent any money to hire people to collect signatures. Instead, it plans to rework its proposed ban and  go before voters in 2016. The new proposal will focus on  a trapping ban on public lands.
