Nontarget Trapping Incident Report

Reported: Nov 27, 2005
Location: Weippe, Idaho

Species: Dog
Trap Type: Kill
Incident Date: unknown

Victim's Disposition: dead
Victim's Name: Grizzly

Legal Action: unknown
Result: n/a

Summary: After Grizzly went missing, her caregivers searched for hours without success. Before dawn the next morning they resumed the search, checking the nearby RV Park and Campground. The husband stepped into a trap on the edge of the pond, but managed to free himself. Five hours later they found Grizzly in the Park. Horrifying was that just a few feet away was Samson, their 5-month-old Bindle boxer cross adopted from a shelter, dead with a broken neck. Samson had disappeared just 5 days before. Apparently the trapper removed the trap from Samson and reset it. The owner of the RV Park denied all knowledge of the traps, then recanted and said they were set for beaver. The caregivers have absolutely no legal recourse.
