Today, my grandpa set out snare traps to catch the foxes that have been around our property, because he wanted to protect our dog from being attacked by them. I then got a phone call from my dad telling me our dog got caught in one. FML
C_Ramirez1695 tells us more :
Unfortunately our dog has passed. It was a choke snare. I don't blame my grandpa he loved our dog just as much as we did, he was only trying to protect him. I don't know where you're from in the world but foxes and coyotes are not harmless. Our dog was a little shih tzu and a fox or coyote wouldn't think twice about attacking him.

Sounds like he was so ensnared with the foxes that he forgot about the dog's safety, trapping himself in quite the conundrum. It's a captivating story, really.

I rescued my dog from a snare trap on a neighboring property after she went missing for a day, traumatic as hell but she was unhurt. She's so smart, won't go near one now.

snare traps are cruel. Live humane traps would be better. Even if he ends up shooting the foxes at least they aren't tangled up in a painful trap beforehand. And is your dog alive?
