Anti-trapping initiative in works for 2016 ballot
By Moosetrack Megan
Montanans could get to cast their vote on whether or not trapping on public land should be legal.
The Montana secretary of state gave approval last week for anti-trappers to try to collect 25,000 signatures to get the issue on the November 2016 ballot.
I-177 would not take away private landowners’ rights to trap.
The group that filed the bill believes $61,000 in revenue will be lost in trapping licenses.
