I heard on the news that the snare was tagged appropriately. F&G checked the area to see if there were any more snares.

The New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife is currently investigating the incident. According to Smith, they division has a suspect and is looking into legal action against the owner of the snare

Seems the snare was tagged.

This has to be false.... Snares don't hurt animals. I wouldn't have called fish and game,I would've waited for the guy to come and check his traps. I will not say what I would've done to him

:whistling: The dogs owner is just as wrong as the trapper assuming the trapper was doing so illegally ..

"Article I. General Regulations… 135-1 Prohibited conduct…

(25)… …. All domestic animals in those areas where such animals are permitted shall be adequately restrained at all times…."



If the dog was on a leash, none of this would have happened

That place gets so much traffic it's unreal. Every time I drive through there I see alot of vehicles...some parked, some just driving through.

and some driving, while fido follows.
they are trolling for snares.

i got into a slight verbal with a housing development woman while slowly driving the roads with her dogs running around following her. this was during trapping season, and we were running a trapline.

Sucks about the dog. I've been in that park thousands of times as my son's sports are held there and I can't believe that someone would have set something that close to the path. My guess is that whoever did it never thought that people would be out there in February. Or thought that he or she was still in a part of the Raccoon Creek WMA. I was going to walk around in that area because it is a deer mecca and I know that there are sheds in there, but think I'll pass for now.
