New bobcat farm approved to open in Montana

The North Dakota fur farm owned by Larry Shultz has been approved to relocate to Roy, Montana.

Background: After taking comments over the summer, the Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks has approved a license for a commercial bobcat fur farm. The application for the fur farm drew international attention, and over 20,000 comments.

The state of Montana finally announced yesterday the farm application has been approved, citing “no substantive opposition to the laws or regulations in Montana that reflect opposition to the permit.”

Media reports the farm will be one of only two “large scale” bobcat farms in the US. This information is, however, unconfirmed.

When opened, the address for the Larry Shultz bobcat farm will be:

5700 Romunstad Rd
Roy, Montana 59471
