The Montana Furbearer Conservation Alliance is involved in a fight for the right to trap wolverines in Montana. Alliance spokesman Don Bothwell spoke to the Associated Press for a story on the debate and the lawsuit that Defenders of Wildlife filed.
Also, Jim Greeley, the president of the Mid-Hudson Valley Fur Harvesters Association, was quoted throughout a story on the basics of trapping in the Bennington Banner.
Without groups like the Montana Furbearer Conservation Alliance fighting for a voice on trapping-related matters and organizations like the Mid-Hudson Valley Fur Harvesters Association helping to educate the public on trapping, things might be a lot different for us.
So, make sure you join your local association and help out in any way you can.
