KALISPELL - Montana is about to start its first wolf trapping season, but first, trappers must take a certification class.
The free classes are directed by the Fish, Wildlife and Parks Commission and are required before wolf trapping season begins Dec. 15.
John Fraley, a FWP information officer, said, "Any time you talk about wolves there's a lot of emotions involved and you know wolves are an awesome animal."
He said wolves are designated as a species in need fo management, and trapping is a part of the state's plan for them.
Six classes are offered throughought the Missoula and Kalispell areas and start Sept. 15 through Dec. 8.
The six-hour classes teach ethics, regulations and trapping techniques from experienced trappers.
