The Montana Trapping Advisory Committee will hold its second meeting Aug. 28 and 29 in Butte at the Emergency Services Building, 3615 Wynne Ave.

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, clarify roles in the process, review the collaborative process and timeline, continue learning about trapping in Montana, draft guiding principles and begin work on addressing questions the committee previously identified as most important.

The committee will have two to three more professionally facilitated meetings over the next six months and will 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.
