Trap found by child was illegal

Posted on February 18,2016

Trap found by child was illegal. “City ordinance prohibits foot-hold traps from being placed inside city limits” of Missoula.

The small trap is being viewed as not posing any danger to pets and children, but would you mind if your child or pet was playing in dirt and their fingers or paw were caught?

Good some places, like Missoula city limits, prohibit animal cruelty, including trapping. Scary, as some pointed out, that Montana Trapper’s Association representative did not know this and instead wanted the parent cited.
