Hound Caught in a Snare Today

My father ran the dogs today after bunnies. One of the dogs was chopping away on a cottontail when my dad heard the hound start making strange sounding barks proceeded by squealing.
He found the hound caught in a snare.
I trap (alittle) but the thing that aggravated me when he informed me what happened was the snare had no trapper ID # or tag on it. Also it had no deer stop or any type of stop on it for that matter. It was a "dispatch" snare, illegal in PA I believe. It had a small spring on the slide which I believe aides in dispatching an animal rapidly if I'm not mistaken. I've never taken a cable restraint class here in PA nor thought about snaring.
I'm glad he got to the hound when he did.

Re: Hound Caught in a Snare Today

I had a hound in a small paw trap with no id tags. Pulled the trap and left a note. Never got a call to get the trap back or explination on why no id tag.

Usually in footholds there is little if any foot damage. I've had a hound or two caught before. I actually caught a domestic dog this year while trapping, released it completely unharmed. I have an issue with killing type snares however.

No damage done to the dog. Scared him more than anything. Had the trap had tags I would let them know my dog was in it. Don't know much bout snares.

Why are dog people so afraid of traps?

Re: Hound Caught in a Snare Today

Are you sure the spring was not there to be used for a snare support-sometimes called a "wammy"?
That would not explain why ther was no deer stop or tag on the cable though.

I've let cats and dogs(a few times my own)out of my traps with little more than a buised foot.
Traps are not as bad as most people think when they are used legally by responsible trappers.

Yes and I agree with your second statement.

Re: Hound Caught in a Snare Today

I guess to be afraid is when you put as much as i have into my dogs who are part of the family and phenominal hunters it is hard to see them injured at all and potentially spooked from hunting at least for the day. All this for someone who might be doing good for ecosystem but is getting only minor $ for hides. Please don't look at it one-sided
