Summary: On a state game land, where Browning's caregivers frequently walk him and sightsee with their two daughters (ages 2 and 4). Browning was in the trap for about 10 minutes before being rescued. "He can hardly walk on it today from it being so sore and swollen," writes his caregiver, who adamantly opposes traps. "This is my second pet to fall victim to a trap," she adds. "Unfortunately, my cat was not as lucky, and after five days and two chewed-off hind legs, she was able to crawl home to us, only to have to be euthanized immediately. She fell victim to an illegal trap on my grandmother's posted land."
