The best plan is no traps used at all for any reason.

Noted. I hope that it does go through but, if not, I'm ready for immediate followup. Sad that folks don't seem to know the concept of how rare animals like these are; the sadder thing is that many don't care. Care2rs, I've a brother who's a retired State Senator's aide. He's always said that letters matter more to these guys than petitions. Something to think about....

This is one way to hunt Otter for his pelt! May the lawsuits work! How about some enforcable laws banning hunting and traps.

We need a federal ban on traps.

"“Idaho is the crossroads for lynx, allowing a healthy mixing between Rockies and Canadian populations. If we lose the lynx in Idaho, the whole western U.S. population is at risk.” "
