A New York Assembly Bill, (A.B. 2490), is seeking to legalize turtle trapping. If trapping itself were not cruel enough, the bill includes the use of spears and the clubbing to death of snapping turtles.

Turtles also get their tails cut off and then a hose is stuck in them, and they are blown up with an air compressor until the shell lifts off of the body.

The passage of Assembly Bill 2490 is especially disappointing and pathetic coming on the heels of the vote to ban sales of sharks' fins. Saving native turtles isn't as high-profile an issue, and won't win the members enough votes, I suppose.
