Summary: A woman walking along a road in the woods with her dog was frightened when a small Conibear trap snapped shut on her dog's foot. After pulling the trap loose she became angry. The trap had no owner's tag, so she followed the ATV tracks to a neighbor's house and confronted the trapper. Except for lacking an identification tag, the trap, set for rabbits, was legal.
