Wyoming Trapping Incidents

We need your help — together we can achieve trapping reform in Wyoming

Tens of thousands of animals are trapped in Wyoming every single year. These numbers represent only the trapped animals reported by less than 30% of trappers in Wyoming from 2008 to 2020. For every trap, we believe one to ten non-target animals may be trapped. Every animal and bird of prey is a possible victim.
