Trapping season is underway for most furbearing species in the Salmon Region and dog owners should be aware that traps may be present on the landscape. Traps and snares are rarely encountered by recreationists and their companion animals, but it can occur. Idaho Fish and Game wants recreationists to know how to safely release a pet if it is accidentally caught in a foothold trap or snare.
Most traps and snares are simple in design and easy to operate if their mechanisms are understood. Some of the larger foothold and body-gripping traps can be challenging because they require more effort to open, but the principles are the same.
The first thing to remember is that a dog in a trap will be frightened, but not necessarily hurt.
If the dog is caught by a foothold trap, first cover the dog’s face with a coat or shirt or secure the dog’s face in the sleeve to calm and prevent it from biting during the release. To open the jaws of a foothold trap, the levers or springs on either side of the trap jaws must be compressed using your hands or feet. Apply force to the levers or springs as closely to the jaws as possible for best leverage. This will allow the jaws to open and the dog to pull its foot free.
If a dog is caught in a body-grip trap, it is important that dog owners know how to act quickly. With a strong grip, squeeze both springs on either side of the trap jaws and rotate the trap 90 degrees to take pressure off the dog’s windpipe. Next, compress one of the springs using both hands until you can fasten the lock. Repeat on the other spring, then slide the dog’s head from between the trap jaws.
If a dog is caught in a snare, owners must act quickly to restrain the dog to prevent suffocation. Pinch the cables together in front of the lock mechanism to release tension, then slide the lock mechanism back. If you cannot slide the lock mechanism, cut the cable from the dog’s neck with a pair of short-nosed cable cutters. FelcoTM or a similar brand is recommended.
It is a good idea for dog owners to carry a pair of cable cutters and a 6-foot rope or leash. These are essential tools that may end up saving a dog’s life.
Idaho Fish and Game has produced an informational video and brochure with detailed, step-by-step visual instructions on how to release dogs from traps available at http://fishandgame.idaho.gov/public/hunt/?getPage=141. Brochures are available at the Idaho Fish and Game Salmon Regional Office, local ranch and feed supply stores, veterinarian clinics, and the Salmon Animal Shelter. Recreationists, including upland bird hunters, hikers, skiers, and dog trainers, who enjoy the great outdoors in the company of man’s best friend are encouraged to review these materials before they head to the field.Click Here for a PDF file: AttachmentSize trappedPetBrochure.pdf1.09 MB
