Puppy gets trapped in a hunting trap while on a hiking excursion

October 21,2016 – Waterford, Maine

Dog owners are universal in recalling the haunting cries of their dogs caught in leghold traps. Yet these would be considered the lucky victims. The deadly hidden snares and conibears are rather silent and quick killers. Aside from the animal’s pain and suffering, even death, who pays for this? The petowner, the veterinarian, the animal rescuers, wildlife rehabbers, the tax payer, but not the trapper.
