HARDING TWP. – The Township Committee may have unanimously passed, on first reading, an amended ordinance to regulate fox trapping, but there still seems to be wildly differing opinions on what the final ordinance will look like.

The prior ordinance, enacted three years ago spear headed by of Committeeman Nicolas Platt, is set to expire at the end of the year. Originally, the ordinance had completely banned the trapping of foxes entirely in the township.
