Thanks Cal for the link to the article by Louis Sahagun. Kudos to Assemblyman Richard Bloom (D-Santa Monica) for introducing the bill and I do hope that AB 1213 will be passed and signed into law. Read and noted.

Noted - and so it should be - things like this in the first place should never have been allowed. However, if they put traps down so that rubbish humans get caught in them, let it be!
