Another Trapper Victory!
NTA legal counsel Gary Leistico presented oral arguments on the CITES Tagging lawsuit in Missoula MT. on October 23rd. We received the Court’s ruling on the 25th.
Overall the order is VERY good. Total victory on the NEPA portion. The Incidental Take Statement is effective for now but must be clarified by Fish & Wildlife Service. We will be involved in that process also.
It’s important that the judge did not vacate the ITS statement, as that is what the Idaho judge based his ruling on. (though that case is closed, and the plaintiffs would've had to file a new suit to revisit)
Trapping seasons are in full swing, I hope everyone has a safe and successful season.
