Trapping season is on, and the number of pets injured or killed at popular recreation areas indicates how important it is to be aware of traps. Attend a trap-release workshop and learn first aid, how to handle a trap in an emergency, trap regulations and practice hands on with traps.

Two workshops are being held: Sunday, Nov. 26, from 1 to 3 p.m. at St. Anthony Parish, 217 Tremont St. and Sunday, Dec. 3, from 3:30 to 5:30 at the Humane Society of Western Montana, 5930 Highway 93.

Sponsored by Footloose Montana, a nonprofit group educating concerned citizens about traps on public lands. Call 406-282-1482 or visit
