GREAT FALLS — A proposal by a North Dakota couple to relocate their commercial bobcat fur farm to central Montana has generated comments from around the world.
Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks game warden Shawn Briggs says a substantial numbers of comments on an environmental assessment came from all over the United States and the world, including Great Britain, New Zealand and Australia.
Briggs says the agency will analyze the comments before rendering a final decision on whether to issue a permit for the fur farm in Fergus County.
Larry and Carol Schultz currently operate a bobcat fur farm in Arnegard in western North Dakota.
They want to move because of the noise and traffic from the booming oil industry in the area.
