Venus Flytrap Thefts to become a felony under law

Feb 01 2014 09:32 AM | Jake in Non Forum News

N.C. Rep. Ted Davis Jr. is planning to introduce a bill in the General Assembly to make the theft of Venus' flytraps a felony in New Hanover County
Davis, a New Hanover County Republican, said Friday he will be the primary sponsor of the bill, which is ready to be filed when the General Assembly's short session begins May 14.
The bill would make the theft of a flytrap plant or seed a Class H felony – but only in New Hanover County.
Davis, who worked with the N.C. Coastal Land Trust on the bill, said he thinks it will make poachers think twice about stealing flytraps.
The freshman representative said one of the reasons he limited the scope of the bill to his home county is because the short session has specific criteria and he could only introduce a local bill related to the flytraps. Additionally, he questioned whether a statewide bill would get support. He said no one else should object to his local bill because the local delegation is supportive.
Camilla Herlevich, the executive director of the Coastal Land Trust, said she is “absolutely” in support of the bill.
“This is an attempt to try to add some deterrence and provide some protection to flytraps in our area,” Herlevich said.
Meanwhile, the state may declare Venus' flytraps a “threatened” species in response to a precipitous drop in the populations of the carnivorous plants.
On Thursday, the state's Plant Conservation Board voted unanimously to support designating flytraps as threatened. A threatened designation is more dire than the flytraps' current standing, which is considered of special concern-vulnerable
