The Senate has recently passed a bill that prohibits “the taking of non-native big game mammals in a fenced-in area.”

This is further clarified within the bill as, for example, “the shooting of a non-native mammal that is confined in a pen or other fenced-in area from which there is no means for such mammal to escape.”

The bill is sponsored by Senator Liz Krueger of the 28th Senate District and was passed with 50 ayes and 12 nays.

It is currently in committee for voting in the Assembly.
