NICHOLASVILLE, Ky. (WTVQ) – Jessamine County Animal Care and Control say a cat has been released from a hunting trap after the animal was found on Williamsburg Drive dragging the trap behind it.
Officers were able to catch the cat and bring it to a local veterinarian who removed the trap. The cat then underwent surgery, losing two toes because of the damage the trap had caused.
The veterinarian says the trap was probably on the cat for somewhere between 24 and 48 hours.
The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife is stressing that using a trap life the one that the cat was caught in is not a legal method to capture free roaming or feral cats.
