HELENA — The Montana Fish and Wildlife Commission has requested info about closed roads or trail regions employed for animal trapping so the panel can look at achievable restrictions on the regions.

The Independent Record reports the commission has asked employees in every single of the seven Montana Fish, Wildlife &amp Parks regions to solicit public feedback on road setbacks.

Officials say regulations call for trappers to set traps a specific distance away from trails and roads open to wheeled cars to protect against conflicts with individuals or pets.

Trapping opponents have testified that trapping on or close to closed roads presents a public security threat.

Trappers say several of the roads in query are remote and seldom employed by individuals, but generally employed by animals such as wolves.
