No trapping to be added to Kleenburn Recreation Area

SHERIDAN — The Sheridan County Parks and Recreation Board issued a notice of intent Tuesday to amend the rules at Kleenburn Recreation Area near Acme to add “No Trapping” to the list of rules.

Board Chairman Mike Nickel noted that trapping is not against the law, but that several people who walk their dogs in the area and recreate along the river have complained of close calls with traps set for wild animals. At a previous Parks and Recreation Board meeting, it was said that a few dogs have been caught in traps.

The Board of County Commissioners will hold a public hearing on the rule change at its meeting at 9 a.m. May 20.

Public comments will be accepted until 5 p.m. May 16. All written comments should be submitted to the Sheridan County Parks and Recreation Board.

Obtain more information in the Sheridan County Commissioners’ office at 224 S. Main St. , Suite B-1.
