Maine settles API lawsuit by agreeing to restrict trapping

Published 10/05/07

The state has agreed to restrict trapping in northern Maine to protect Canada lynx. The commissioner of Maine’s Department of Inland Fisheries & Wildlife signed a consent decree Thursday to settle a lawsuit by the Animal Protection Institute that claimed the agency is liable for lynx that accidentally get injured or killed by traps set for other animals.
