Alaska: Dog’s death in trap raises hackles in Indian

From: Anchorage Daily News

[Indian, Alaska is about 10 miles south of Anchorage]

When Holly Grant’s dog ran into the woods near Indian and started making a fuss earlier this month, she thought maybe there had been a confrontation with a wild animal.

“I started calling her name,” Grant said, “calling and calling.”

Trucker, a 3-year-old pitbull-Labrador cross, did not come, however. So finally Grant waded into the snowy forest looking for her pet.

What she found horrified her.

“When I saw her, she was caught in this trap trying to get out,” Grant said.

The trap in question was a Conibear body-gripping trap, the kind of trap known as a killer trap.
