    Little Creek dog-trap

    Hi, I just joined this site in order to put the word out that my dog got caught in a leg-hold trap between the parking area and trail head at Little Creek Mesa. It did not seem to be malicious against dogs--I think my dog was chasing some critter and got caught in the trap set for it. We got her loose with no injury, and left the trap unset (but un-vandalized). Seems like an awfully busy place to be setting traps...I guess I don't get it about trapping anyway.

    First, glad the pooch is ok. Second, thats a pretty lame place to place a trap. I would be inclined to "disable" the equipment if not outright dispose of it.

    How were the trails, we're heading up tomorrow.

    trails are perfect! nobody was there. if you want to "disable" the trap, it's up a little draw under a "cliff." probably 100 yards from the road on the north side of road.

    the guy from Zion cycles wonders if there is a name on the trap, so if you go looking, look for identifying marks??

    There is no excuse for putting a trap at a trail head. It should be permanently disabled. Next time I'm up there, I will try to find it and fix it for good.

    Some moron put traps at the base of the C trail in Cedar City. Any that I find, I will weld shut, then return them to their original location.
