Promoting trap-free public lands for people, pets and wildlife.

Mission

Footloose Montana promotes trap-free public lands for people, pets and wildlife. We educate the public about the impacts of recreational trapping on pets, wildlife, fire, drought, ecological imbalance and Montana's economy. Traps are inhumane, indiscriminate and harmful to conservation. We give trap-release workshops statewide, presentations, classroom discussions, and use social media and media advertising to reach the broadest segment of Montanans in order to reform trapping in Montana.

Billboard Education

Footloose Montana is dedicated to fighting for wolves and other furbearer creatures. Trapping is abhorrent and indiscriminate. Our organization is working to ban trapping in Montana. We believe in wildlife being self-regulating and want people and pets to be safe from this horror. Our Governor Greg Gianforte and this legislature are poised to kill 900 wolves in our state. Its a disgrace and of Wildlife Agency is completely controlled by the Governor and his appointments. Trapping kills more than 100,000 animals each year, often those killed are unintended victims to this sick, outdated practice. We are working to get areas off-limits to trapping in the urban interface and educating the public about the realities of trapping. IN 2016, we had a citizen's initiative that would ban trapping, we garnered more than 187,000 votes statewide.

We give trap-release workshops to teach the public how to release their pets from hidden, baited traps. First we let people know where traps are likely to be, and what the trapping season dates are. A veterinarian explains what happens to an animal in a trap and how to avoid being bitten while trying to release a pet. Hands-on practice with traps under supervision is the most popular part of the workshop.
