Another Dog Caught In Trap

On Feb. 13, Shae Owens did what she does every day at her 12-acre property on the outskirts of Coeur d'Alene: went for a walk with her dog, a Labrador named Bodhi. With them came Ben, a yellowLabrador belonging to the Owens' sister-in-law, Tolli Willhite. Both dogs were off-leash since, according to Owens, they were on her property. But the walk didn't last long before Owens heard Ben crying. The animal's leg was trapped in a non-lethal trap someone had placed on the property without Owens' permission. Fortunately for the yellow Lab, Owens had recently read an online pamphlet on how to properly free dogs from hunting traps/Keith Cousins, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

Question: Do you think these incidents will prompt the Powers That Be to act to control trapping near populated areas?
