lisarob22 commented on Cache trapping is bad idea

It was quite a surprise to hear of the trapline set (legholds and quick-kill traps) in one of the busiest public hiking areas in Teton County. This is an obvious display of the crucial need for trapping reform in our state, and the need to also modernize our wildlife management leadership…

During the Christmas holidays, WU was alerted that a trapline had been placed on one of the busiest community hiking and recreational areas in Jackson.  Let me share a few facts for the public. It is legal to set traps directly on the public trails without a setback. Furbearer traps and s…

More wolves scheduled for slaughter in the Gros Ventre?…
