Trapping laws on public lands ineffectiveSince mid-November, six dogs became entangled in neck snares or held in terror by foot-hold traps. Six cases in an eight-week period. If we broaden the time frame to include February 2020, less than 12 months ago, we can add another. Except for one, all were on public land and at least half set illegally.

Dog, “Finn”, Caught in Leghold, Vedauwoo Recreation Area, Medicine Bow National Forest, WY"It was traumatizing for us as owners though, to hear him scream like that and have to act fast to figure out what to do. We had no idea that traps were even something to worry about while exploring public lands."
