Nontarget Trapping Incident Report

Reported: Jun 20, 1995
Location: Eagle River, Wisconsin

Species: Dog
Trap Type: Leghold
Incident Date: unknown

Victim's Disposition: injured
Victim's Name: Molly

Legal Action: unknown
Result: n/a

Summary: In a National Forest, Mollie was caught in a leghold trap for about ten minutes. She bit her guardian on the shin when he tried to free her. He writes, "This dog was also emotionally scared and held a grudge toward me for months — maybe forever — even though it was not my trap — I was only trying to help." The trap was apparently legally set, and there is no violation for "accidentally" trapping a dog.
