Idaho Game Officials to Review Trapping Rules After Pet Deaths

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — The Idaho Fish and Game Commission has agreed to look at new rules for trappers after body-gripping traps killed two pet dogs in northern Idaho last winter.

The Spokesman-Review reports (http://bit.ly/U79pXl) that the commission voted unanimously last week to start making new rules for the body-gripping traps.

Those types of traps are typically used underwater to trap beavers, or put in trees to trap pine martens.

But the traps were on the ground when one killed a Great Dane/pit bull mix on a walk with its owner in December.

In January, a black Labrador on a run with its owner died in one of the traps.

Commissioner Brad Corkill says the traps are powerful enough to break an animal’s spine and death usually happens quickly.
