Information on the effects of trapping on wolverines in the West.

Wolverines and Trapping

Montana is the only lower-48 state where wolverines are still legally trapped.  Is this an unnecessary source of wolverine mortality that risks their survival, or is it an important part of America’s cultural heritage that Montana should be proud to maintain, which combined with the data collected from the trapped animals outweighs any negative effects on the lower-48 population? You decide!
