2013 Told in Person: We live near Fernley. Dogs get trapped out here all the time. My friends take dogs out in the hills. I won’t go out there. What would I do if something happened to one of my dogs? It’s too far to call. I worry about traps more than anything out there. Coyotes have their territory so I don’t worry about them as much. I’d like the freedom to let my dogs out.

This is how it ought to be. We pet owners outnumber the trappers! Why should they hold us hostage from enjoying outdoors? (Sadie behind Roger)
