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

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.

Honestly, what was your grandpa thinking? That dogs are somehow exempt from traps?

Grandpa logic-Back in my day our dogs were smarter and didn't have all of this damned technology!

I hope your dog is ok! Next time, your grandpa should consider a more humane trap.

poor dog :(

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.

The dog was probably texting and walking... Didn't even see the trap!

I hope the dog is okay, what type of dog is it?

why does the dog breed matter?

I was just curious, and smaller dogs are more fragile

Being so close to Mexico, I bet it was a ginger Chihuahua.

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?

Most snare traps don't cause any harm

Foxes and coyotes are usually too smart to get caught in live traps. They're wily and sneaky. That's the only issue with most traps. :/

Poor dog. Trap Grandpa instead
