A woman in Hebron, Indiana recently witnessed one of the worst imaginable sights-her pet dog dying slowly inside a metal animal trap. Upon finding her trapped dog, the pet owner struggled to free him from the metal jaws of the trap, but to no avail.

The person that did this needs to be caught and prosecuted. It's like seeing your child in the trap. What a horrible helpless feeling. Sick, sick people.

There are more humane ways to deal with a barking dog. Shame on the person who did this!
I am so sorry for the dog who shouldn't have had to suffer this and offer my sympathy to his owner.

This is increadibally sad! i went through a simillar ordeal, but with rat poison someone put in my yard, my cat, Angel, got poisoned when i was away. when i got back i realised she wasn't eating. I didn't think it was a serious sickness, The next day she wasn't moving very much and she cept her eyes closed. At this point i was seriously worried so i took her straight to the vet. While i vas waiting for in the waiting room her breathing was slowing down and her eyes were rolling in the back of her head, I started panicing. The vet came straight to me, knowing something was wrong he took her into the examination room. with tears in my eyes i watched him carry her away. That was the last time i ever saw her. Traps & Poison HAS TO BE BANNED! NO animal has to suffer like that, Wild or Domesticated!
