2011 email: Pepple’s my Catahoula was first trapped in a leg trap and it took me around 10 minutes to figure out how to release it, and right after that she got into another one that hit her in the face as it closed. She had a cut over her eye and it actually hit her hard enough to damage her eye and she now has two different colored eyes from the trauma. I’m a Marshal for the courts here in Las Vegas and I actually got one of the news channels to come out and do a story on trapping, I believe it was channel 8, it aired later at night so I’m not sure how many people saw it. I found Fish and Game to be non supportive even though the trapper was using illegal means to travel to the areas where he was setting his traps, they even went so far as to inform me that I could be arrested for removing the trap that caught my dog. I’ve lived in the same area for over ten years, and ride my horses most every weekend, I never knew that you could trap in the Red Rock Conservation area, and have never seen anyone trap there before, and they certainly seemed more interested in chewing me out than citing him for illegally riding his quad on trails where motor vehicles are prohibited. I have heard many stories since mine, from people who hike in MT Charleston, whose dogs have been injured in traps, I’m still amazed that they are allowed to trap so close to trails where people and their pets travel. Keep up the good work. [Areas closed to Hunting and Trapping -per Nevada Department of Wildife ]
