A Set Trap Can Catch Any Animal

Letters / Anchorage Daily News / April 14, 2007

I trapped during the Great Depression; it was the only way I could get spending money. I even caught my own dog in a coyote set. For my mistake, my father made me shoot the severely crippled pet. I was only 12 years old.

A set made for a wolverine will catch any passing animal, including wolf, lynx, coyote and your pet.

My dog was caught in a large Conibear trap in a remote area of Chugach State Park. My friend and I were able to save the dog but only by superhuman effort. We pried the jaws open with our fingers. The dog would have suffocated in a few more seconds.
