Nontarget Trapping Incident Report

Reported: Feb 20, 2006
Location: Ravenswood, West Virginia

Species: Dog
Trap Type: Other
Incident Date: unknown

Victim's Disposition: injured
Victim's Name: Max

Legal Action: unknown
Result: n/a

Summary: Max was caught in a trap somewhere near creek that runs through his caregiver's backyard. She "discovered yesterday that traps have been washing onto my property for years after floods. The trapper was in my field on the day of the incident looking for lost traps after finding out about my dog's injuries. Our last flood was several weeks ago, so the trapper is obviously not checking his traps daily as required by law." The caregiver says she will will pursue charges and seek compensation for Max's vet expenses. She writes, "The incident is very fresh, so I'm spending all of my time taking care of Max and cleaning him up. I'm still somewhat in shock."
