Nontarget Trapping Incident Report

Reported: Nov 26, 2012
Location: Princeton, Minnesota

Species: Dog
Trap Type: Snare
Incident Date: Nov 22, 2012

Victim's Disposition: injured
Victim's Name: Trea

Legal Action: unknown
Result: n/a

Summary: A young black lab was caught in a snare by her snout. The snare was so tight around her snout it prevented the dog from eating or drinking and sliced up the dog's nose and cut deep into her upper palate. The wire was embedded in the dog's tongue and her teeth were worn down from trying to break free from the trap. When the dog was found, infection was setting in and she was in shock. A rescue group took custody of the dog now named Trea. Vets also found evidence that Trea had a broken front right paw sustained by a previous trap some months ago.
