Glad to hear they're OK. Our female got caught in a snare about a month ago. Luckily we heard her and could tell something was wrong as she was just about passed out and nearly choked to death. I was not happy to say the least as it was before the season started for snares and there was no name on it.
some of the lock used for cable restraints and say beaver snares are the same the difference is in how they are set. CR need to be set were nothing big can entangle them. then its just like a choker chain. I have snared quite a few beaver this year and all have been alive when i got there. even the ones i tried to tangle up.
