Summary: "I was walking with my 2 dogs near the woods when Brownie started yelping," writes her caregiver. "The trap that got her was so old and rusty there was no ribber buffer left. I took me about a full minute to figure out how to get it off. I pulled the trap out of the ground and threw it in a nearby pond!" Brownie's caregiver cleaned the wound with peroxide and bandaged it, deeming the wound not serious enough to require a vet visit.
