It's time to act, trapping regulations are up for public comment!
Wyoming Untrapped has been in talks with Wyoming Game and Fish for months to implement trapping regulation changes that would prevent some kinds of traps from being set on hiking trails. WGFD has backtracked, and is only proposing to close one small corridor, Cache Creek trail in the Bridger-Teton National Forest, to furbearer trapping. That means that furbearer traps will still be found on all Forest Service trails except Cache Creek, posing a danger to the pets of the non-trapping users who use those trails. It's time to speak out, show up, and let them know that isn't enough to meet the needs of non-consumptive users, their pets, and the Teton County community. Managing for a diverse set of users by separating hiking trails and trapping is simply responsible management. Use the buttons below to take action now, or view our take action page for full details.
We need you to submit a public comment, sign our petition, and show up at a May 28 public hearing.
