Governor Pat Quinn has signed legislation creating a muskrat trapping season in Illinois.

The law permits muskrats to be taken by trap during a season to be set every year by the state director of natural resources.

According to the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, muskrats live in every county in the state, usually in ponds and other bodies of water.
