Dog Hiking

Did you know that Idaho currently allows a trap or snare to be set as close as 5 feet from the centerline of a hiking trail? We don’t believe that law protects owners and their pets sufficiently when walking with dogs, even on a leash, using 5 feet from the center line of a trail.

Idaho Fish and Game is proposing a rule change to require increased distances from trails as well as a 300′ setback from any designated public campground, trailhead, paved rail, or picnic area. Idaho Humane Society supports this rule change.
