FWP Offers Pet Release Trapping Class

Posted: Updated:
BOZEMAN -

Do you know how to release your animal if they were to get caught in a trap? If not, next week Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks will host a workshop to show you what to do if you were ever in that situation.

The workshop is focused around alleviating fears of pets being caught in traps, gives pet owners the tools to get their animals out of a trap and provide hands-on demonstrations.

Spokesperson, Andrea Jones said it's rare animals come in contact with traps, but it's all good to know what to do if it does happen.

"In region 3, we had 5 injuries occur last year due to animals being caught in traps. Four of the five of those injuries were animals running at large," said Andrea Jones, FWP spokesperson. "The number one thing that you can do to reduce the risk of your animal being caught in a trap is to have your dog on a leash or at least within voice control."

The workshop takes place on Thursday October 24 from 6 - 7:30 p.m. Registration is required. To find out how to register, click here.
