Summary: In this national forest, the trap was placed on a trail near a campground where people often hiked. Pardeau was suddenly caught in the trap which was right beside the trail where people were walking. The woman reporting this incident had to hold Pardeau while his caregiver struggled to open the trap. Pardeau was in the trap for half an hour. When freed, he broke loose from the woman's grasp and in his terror bit her hands. She "was injured worse than the dog," and at a nearby hospital received five stitches and treatment for the numerous bites on her hands.
