Last Friday, we, along with our friends at the Western Environmental Law Center, filed a suit against the State of Montana on behalf of three non-profit conservation groups to curb the trapping of threatened lynx. Because foothold/leghold and Connibear kill traps and snares are indiscrimintate devices, those set for other animals can and do capture lynx. Trapped animals suffer terribly and are often severly injured or killed. Our hope is gain proper regulation of trapping in occupied lynx habitat and lynx critical habitat in Montana, so these amazing creatures can embark on what will hopefully be a successful recovery free from senseless pain and suffering.
