Dog Gets Caught in Illegally Placed Trap at Quail Lake; DWR Sees Resurgence in Trapping.

St. GEORGE – Southern Utah resident Scott Adams received an unwanted gift the morning after Christmas when, while walking his dogs along a familiar path at Quail Lake, his 40-pound corgi stepped into an illegally placed, spring- loaded trap – a common complaint received by Division of Wildlife Resources during bobcat trapping season.

More than any other time of year, Ekins said, the DWR becomes flooded with complaints from dog owners whose pet had become caught in a furbearer’s trap during bobcat season.

“It’s always a dog,” he said. “And the reason for that is because of their nose, you know?”
