The U.S. Sportsman’s Alliance Foundation (USSAF) announced this week that they have submitted comments to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) in regards to the State of Maine’s application for an Incidental Take Permit, that, if granted, would release Maine and the trappers from liability for accidentally trapping a Canada lynx while trapping other legal species.

The USSAF stated that they support the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife’s (MDIFW) application and request that the USFWS not add any further restrictions to the trapping codes, citing Maine’s current trapping laws are more than adequate in protecting the lynx.
