The Anti's Say...

Stop killing animals by hunting and trapping and poisoning them. Sign petitions by Footloose Montana for ballot initiatives to stop trapping on public lands.

The Anti's Say...

Do list wolverines, Canada lynx, bison, et al, which must be added for the preservation of the natural ecosystem.

The Anti's Say...

Remove from office current leaders, with their lifetime tenured jobs with Montana FWP, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and Forest Service, that lie with impunity to the public and are not protecting wildlife enough from hunters, trappers, loggers and snowmobilers.
