The Montana Trapping Advisory Committee will hold its third meeting Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 6 and 7 in Miles City at the Sleep Inn & Suites, 1006 S. Haynes Ave. Saturday’s meeting will start at 9 a.m., and Sunday’s meeting will start at 8 a.m.
Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks assembled this citizens’ committee to provide recommendations that ensure population viability of trapped species, the humane treatment of animals and the minimization of social conflict. The committee represents the spectrum of opinions on trapping.
During the meeting, members will affirm the committee’s charter, continue learning about trapping in Montana, finalize “guiding principles,” move closer to agreement on tentative answers to the individual “Important Questions,” and confirm a date and location for a fourth meeting and assign homework.
The committee’s charge is to present recommendations to FWP by March 30. FWP staff are not members of the committee but will provide information and technical assistance.
The meeting is open to the public. The committee will hear public comment at noon on both days.
