OMG!!! Does the "Independent" scrutinize their letters?
At least this "welfare rancher" should have their 1st grader write about the issue. I'm sure it would be better researched.
Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks continues to put the interests of trappers ahead of the well-being and safety of the American public and their pets for the financial gain of a ruthless minority.
It also continues to enable the trapping, both legal and indiscriminate, of rare and endangered species such as wolverine and fisher.
It's time that MFWP and our state legislature re-examine our priorities, and consider treating vulnerable, rare, and helpless species compassionately which happens to be the hallmark of a civilized society.
"Though extreme animal rights activists view killing any animal as egregious, many in Montana—including Footloose—view ethical hunting as an important part of the local food movement, and not antithetical to animal welfare. Trapping does not hold the same position of reverence."
I'm assuming that the comment above indicates that Footloose and other anti-trapping groups are against the "killing for sport" of predators ie wolves, coyotes, lions etc AND "trophy hunting"...all of which have no importance in the local food movement.
If that's true...Good for them!
