BIRDS AND MAMMALS - JAWED TRAPS PROHIBITED. INITIATIVE. Adds section 3015 to Fish and Game Code prohibiting any person, including governmental employees, from using any type of jawed trap to take birds or mammals. Reenacts and amends Fish and Game Code section 12002 to make violation of section 3015 a misdemeanor. Adds Fish and Game Code section 12002.5 to provide that a second conviction for violating section 3015 is a felony. Financial impact: Approximately $2 million is presently spent for animal control programs. The increase in costs to state and county governments caused by this initiative is unknown but could be substantial.
