Summary: A woman hiker looking for Native American artifacts found a dog caught in a coyote trap. The dog had been there about a day, caught by the left front leg. She freed the dog from the trap and then spent a week and a half trying to track down the dog's family. The dog wasn't wearing a collar, and no one responded to fliers and newspaper ads. Meanwhile, the vets taking care of the dog, now named Ava, thought she would need to lose the injured leg. The woman was not in a position to care for Ava long-term. When it became obvious that nobody would claim Ava, she was taken to Best Friends Animal Society of Kanab, UT, to heal and for later adoption.
