While you are outdoors enjoying the many recreational opportunities that Idaho has to offer, please be aware during this time of year that trapping season is open and traps may be set near your favorite place to hunt or hike.  If by chance your dog does wonder into a trap there are steps you can take to release your pet without harm.  Please review the YouTube video titled “Releasing your dog from a trap.”  This short video shows you how to release your dog from a foot-hold, cable device, and a body gripping trap.
