Summary: Accompanied by her 2 dogs, a woman went riding her horse. One dog got caught in a trap in a canyon. The woman was unable to remove trap from her dog's leg and could not break the chain the trap was attached to. The dog thrashed wildly when the woman attempted to leave for help, so she stayed with the dog and released the horse to return home as a distress signal. Help finally arrived and the dog was taken to the vet.
