Dog caught in leghold trap, Pinedale, WY


“On 11/5/2017 I received a phone call informing me someone was trapping in the Boulder Basin area after their dog was accidentally caught in the trap. On 11/6/2017 I went to Boulder Basin and found several traps set around the parts of a processed white-tailed deer. The rib cage, hide and leg bones were being used as bait. I contacted xxxxy who was the trapper. xxxxy stated he and his son were trying to trap coyotes and had never trapped before in Wyoming. xxxx was unaware of many of the trapping regulations. I issued him a warning and explained the regulations to him.”
