Nontarget Trapping Incident Report

Reported: Nov 28, 2007
Location: Eau Claire, Wisconsin

Species: Dog
Trap Type: Kill
Incident Date: Nov 12, 2007

Victim's Disposition: dead
Victim's Name: Bart

Legal Action: Yes
Result: trapper's license suspend for not having trapper education course completed

Summary: When a woman rode her horse along an Eau Claire Country Forest trail, her dog Bart often tagged along. "It was so enjoyable to watch him sniffing, smelling, and running after me with his tongue hanging out," she said. That changed. "Bart just ran down the side of the trail to the stream," she said. "I thought it was unusual that he wanted a drink so quickly. And immediately I heard an agonizing howl. I looked down, and he was violently struggling to get this trap off his neck." But she couldn't get the trap apart. "The nightmare just keeps going and going," she said. The trap was legally set but the trapper's license was suspended for failure to take a required trapper education course.
