News Release – Nevada Humane Society
On Sunday, August 22, 2010, another cat was found in a leg-hold trap, this time in Golden Valley. Now named Trapper Jane, the two-year-old black and white domestic feline, was caught in a leg hold trap and picked up by a Washoe County Animal Services Officer. After being treated at a local veterinary clinic and finishing the five-day legal hold period for stray pets, she was transferred to Nevada Humane Society on August 29.
Her crushed toes were amputated Sunday morning at the NHS clinic and she will be under veterinarian care at NHS for the next month. Her recovery will require ongoing wound care and pain management, but she should in time be able to walk and become available for adoption.
