  • Traps Kill Family’s Three St. Bernards Near Garden Creek, Casper, Wyoming

    Three St Bernards were caught and killed in  snares, Casper, WY. The snare traps are set about knee high on poles buried in sage brush, and have cable loop around the pole that will grip what goes in it, Savannah said. “If you pull on that cable loop, it will suck whatever you pull into it, and if you fight it will just get tighter and tighter and tighter. So it will choke you out if you get your head in there.”
