Bear Trapping 

Trapping and hunting groups have indicated that they will go along with a new rule proposed by the state, which would allow bear trappers to set only one trap at a time.

The state is also proposing a ban on traps that have steel-jaws.

It’s a big issue for animal rights activists, who forced an un-successful referendum back in 2004 to ban the practice.

Maine is the only state in the union that allows bear trapping.
