Dog caught in Conibear trap
February 26,2019 - Waynesboro, Georgia
It may seem so awful to say but this is one very lucky dog. In response to the lengthy suffering leghold traps cause, Conibear traps are body crushing and were designed to be quick kill.
In all our years, we only know of 3 dogs that survived a conibear trap. You only have a few minutes to try to free your dog from death. We are thinking this pooch entered his head to the side and in such a way not to crush his trachea.
This is realty though of trapping. No animal is excused from it. Trappers though are excused while everybody else pays the dreadful price.
