Told in person July 6, 2013

I worked in a veterinary office for 17 years. We saw plenty of trap injuries.[Veterinarians are reluctant to report such cases, so the numbers are all but impossible to obtain. Because trappers are considered “sportsmen”, and because they are clients, veterinarians do not want to alienate them. Nevertheless, TrailSafe heard statements like the one here.]

Trapper Jane had two toes amputated after trap injury.
