Hunters set out traps to – well, trap animals and I think it is an unfair and cheap way to kill an animal. The animal really doesn’t stand a chance at survival and sometimes may even chew off their own foot to get free! I am not the only one who is against traps either. In 2015, three hunters from Wisconsin stumbled upon a timber wolf that had gotten stuck his paw stuck in a metal trap.
Yes, they were hunters, and yes, they decided to try and help the wolf!
But how does one go about freeing a wild animal from a trap – and add the fact that the wolf was in pain into the equation? Was it even possible to free the animal without getting hurt themselves?
First, the hunters needed to take a closer look at the trap and see how it worked.
