  1. This is one of those good news/bad news things. Actually it’s bad news/bad news because nothing to do with trapping is ever good. A 24-hour check would mean individual animals would suffer for less time–a day instead of two, three, a week, etc (that is, IF the trapper obeys the law, which trappers don’t). BUT it also means the trapper would reset the trap every day–giving it a chance to catch and torture a greater number of animals.

      • And none of this ‘illegal trapping’ crap. It’s poaching! These people are stealing wildlife from the public and the public lands. The only way people could have an idea how cruel and how much suffering it causes if their leg, foot or arm was caught in a leg-hold trap in the middle of wilderness and nobody came to help them for a week.

  2. Trapping of wildlife is one of the most inhumane, barbaric, and archaic ways devised to hunt animals. It should forever be banned everywhere. It brings in a measly $96,000 a year for Montana and generates untold suffering. and yet is allowed to continue….why????
