Nontarget Trapping Incident Report

Reported: Apr 11, 2005
Location: Palmer, Alaska

Species: Dog
Trap Type: Kill
Incident Date: Jan 01, 2005

Summary: Along an angler's path off the Old Glenn Highway, Zoe caught her head in a Conibear 330 trap baited with half a salmon. Zoe's head was engulfed and the heavy ruff at her neck crushed. A man muscled open the trap to free Zoe, and his sister, Zoe's caregiver, administered CPR. Zoe survived. Although the trap was set legally, it was not set ethically, being buried under a scum of dead leaves on the trail.
