Our friends in Montana could use our help.
Ballot Initiative I-177 has made it onto the general election ballot for 2016. This initiative was created by animal rights activists and will prohibit trapping on all public lands in Montana.
Among other things, it bans Montana citizens from trapping on public ground. This can ultimately lead to additional trapping and hunting bans in the state. Read the text of I-177 here.
Before you stop and say, “but how does this affect us in Nebraska?”, consider this: If the anti-trapping/animal rights movement gets a foothold in Montana, it will set a precedent to move in to other states. Similar anti-trapping laws have already been passed in California and Colorado.
