MISSOULA — Rachel Luger and Brian Dalpes experienced the unthinkable on December 1st, when their 17-month old dog Betsy got trapped in an illegal trap when they were out for their evening walk.
The trap was near the family’s routine walking path for Betsy, off Hiberta Road.
“We go down to this area all the time several times a week,” Dalpes said, “and we were just doing our walk and she was kind of behind me a little bit and around the bend in the trail and I just heard a commotion, and heard what sounded like an animal fighting.”
Dalpes went to investigate, and he saw the trap was caught on Betsy’s neck.
Dalpes succeeded in getting the trap of Betsy but the damage to Betsy’s airway was severe.
