Dear Animals for the Care of Treatment,
Steel-jaw and conibear (aka "body-gripping") traps cause horrific animal suffering. Conibear traps fatally crush or suffocate their frightened victims to death, while steel-jaw traps clamp down painfully on animals' limbs. In their frantic struggles to escape the traps, ensnared animals will commonly injure themselves terribly, even chewing or twisting off their legs in order to break free. These traps also pose a definite risk to dogs, cats, and "nontarget" wildlife, including protected species.
More information regarding these vile devices can be viewed here.
Trap Free Montana Public Lands (TFMPL), a local group dedicated to protecting public lands for animals and humans, is working to get I-169�??a citizen-driven initiative that, if passed, would ban trapping for recreational purposes on public lands�??added to the ballot. Your help is needed to spread the word, and volunteers are needed to gather signatures.
Help end recreational trapping in Montana
