Dog barely escaped snare incident, Vedauwoo, Medicine Bow-Routt National Forest, WYUntil I became a member of this group, I never knew that traps and snares were set in area we traverse all the time. Tonight we came across a series of snares about 20 yards off of Road 701E. On top of everything else I carry in winter months, I now plan on packing a "trap defense" tool kit as well. What a shame it is I have to worry about me or my dog being snared on public land...
