End of Montana House of Representatives members.

To review the basis of the Montana legislator's 2019 trapping voting record and grades.

2021 Montana Legislator's Trapping Voting Grades are upcoming.

Contact Montana legislators!

https://leg.mt.gov/legislator-information/

Tell legislators you will accept nothing less than respectful treatment of wildlife, will not tolerate the proliferation of these destructive and unnecessary attacks on wildlife, and the indiscriminate cruelty inherent in trapping. Insist wildlife management be based on the best available science, non-lethal alternatives to mitigate wildlife conflicts, and preserving wildlife biodiversity for healthy ecosystems.

Legislators need to either vote for wildlife or we will help vote them out!

We urge you to speak up for wildlife, now! We have a voice, they do not!
