Poacher’s illegal snare catches dog


To the Editor:

It has been brought to my attention that a dog has been caught in an illegal snare that was set next to the Millennium Trail where people walk their dogs. It has also been brought to my attention that that the poacher that set these snares may have been a natural resource officer from Thompson. An incident like this gives people a bad impression of trappers in general.

I would think that the guilty party should apologize to the dog owner and the trapline holder. A trapper with any common sense would not set wolf snares that close where people walk. If I were caught trapping on someone else’s line, I would be charged. Instead of setting illegal snares, I would think a natural resource officer’s time would be better spent checking garbage on North Jonas road and or/enforcing pollution laws.
