Be a part of this much needed historical change and please help us achieve Trap Free Montana Public Lands for people, pets and wildlife! Please share with five of your friends, today! THANK YOU! Send email to Email 1 * Email 2 Email 5 Email 3 Email 4 Your Email * Your First Name * Your Last Name * Subject * Message While Montana's public lands, wildlife and outdoor lifestyle are our most treasured assets, a minimum of 45,000 wild animals and an increasing number of companion animals are trapped and killed by trappers year-round in Montana. We should be able to safely enjoy our public lands free from the hidden tens of thousands of traps and snares whose whereabouts are known only to the trapper. We can no longer afford the commercialization of our valuable wildlife, tolerate incidental non-target catches, disregard indiscriminate pain and suffering, condone contradictions to hunting ethics, ignore effective nonlethal methods or accept safety hazards of traps and snares on our public lands. The time is now for Trap Free Montana Public Lands, a Montana citizen driven ballot initiative. We need 25,000 qualified Montana voter signatures by June 2014 so the voice of the public will be heard and the power of the people can decide what happens on our public lands. Montanans came within only 1500 qualified signatures in our 2009 attempt. Since then a minimum of 180,000 animals have been indiscriminately killed by legalized year round trapping. Our initiative only affects trapping and only on public lands, which are only 1/3 of the state. The rights of the private land owner, as well as hunting and fishing rights, remain protected. There are exceptions for trapping on public land for public health and safety, scientific research, migratory bird propagation, falconry, relocation, medical treatment or if nuisance and conflict animal problems have not been abated by reasonable nonlethal methods. Rodents, other than beaver and muskrat, can continue to be trapped. Our initiative is fair, reasonable and good for Montana. Please help us achieve Trap Free Montana Public Lands! Spread the word, Montanans commit to gathering signatures, and please make a Donation! We have a limited time to get this job done. We need your donations NOW and your commitment to help in order to help get our citizen driven ballot initiative on the ballot. We only have until June 2014 to qualify for the ballot! We then need to see it pass on election day- November 4th, 2014. Thank you!
