Personal email: First I must
say its great to get some kind of response from persons that
have the same problems with trappers and the same out look
on the subject!
Getting up this morning and looking at your email was the
best cup of coffee I've ever had! You must excuses my
writing I'm poor at that so bear with at times.
In the last 12years I have had 3 dogs that have been in
traps.the first dog was in a trap over 3 days and
covered all the area looking for her with no luck and
had to leave on a road trip on the last day. Just when
I was leaving the trapper shows up with my dog with
her front leg almost cut
off and then says keep you dog on a leash so they wont get
in my traps!
That's when I first found out they aloud ed trapping. Well
went through Vegas to a vet and the leg had to be
removed at the coast of $800.00 out of my expense not
the trapper. This dog was only 7 mon.old so she spent
the rest of 10years on three legs and could run like the
other dog I had.
Then camping buy the Belmont area let my Basett dog out in
the morning I was the only person camped and he go
cout in a trap and I heard him and got him out in time
before to much damage was done. The traps were all
over the area close to the camp site!
I live on 40 acre of land on Gold Mt. I'm the only home on
the Mt. And the trappers always set there traps all around
my land so my dogs smell the sent they put out and
then leave to check it out and yes get in a trap!
I've asked if they could move there traps a mile or so away
so my dogs won't get in the traps flat refused said
they can put them any were they want !but at the same time
they have hundred of open Mt. Area around this area.
This year lass month my new dog didn't come home at dinner
time so went out on the A.T.V in the dark looking and
stopping and calling and could hear her some were out there!
After two hours I found her in a trap with a very
large weight on the trap that she had dragged more than one
mile trying to get home! It took her over a wee before she
could get around.
Then about a week ago my Bassett didn't come in at dinner
time and went though the same looking all over the
area and never found him! The next day was going to
town and ran accraoss the trappers down the road from
my home and they had the Bassett in there truck he had
been in there trap all
night and the damage is so bad to the joint in the leg that
I think heal never be abel to run again. That when I
got into the trappers to move there traps a mile down
the road and they said NO!!! We can trap were ever we
want!!! These persons are the most arigrent people and don't
damn about animals and what they do to them! All they want
is the $$ from the state or how ever pays for the
What's the worse thing is how the animal dies,first they get
in the trap and spend 3to some times 5to7days in pain
and then comes along the trapper and he doesn't shot
the animal he clubs it to death (to cheap to use a gun
it mite coast $)
I'm very interested in helping were ever I can on stopping
