Mountain lion trapping bill fails introduction

A bill that would have allowed mountain lion hunters the ability to trap or snare the big cats failed to be introduced for further discussion in this year's legislative session. House Bill 12 was sponsored by Rep. Jim Allen of House District 33, Lander; Rep. Hans Hunt of House District 2, Newcastle, plus Sen. Eli Bebout of Senate District 26, Riverton and Sen. Larry Hicks of the 11th District, Baggs. Bills this session need a two thirds vote for introduction. This one failed with 34-24 vote in the house.
