This reminds me of something that happened on this years trip to Pelee Island. Jordan, Dave and I decided to go look for water snakes along the shore while the others looked for turtles in a pond. From where the pond is it is hard to get to the rocky shore. You have to go through tall reeds (at least 6 feet tall) and the forest. It takes about 15 minutes at a normal walking pace. When we got to the shore Jordan and I saw a seagull that was struggling in the water. I noticed it had a luer in its wing which it had tried to pull out with its beak and therefore the luer was stuck in the beak aswell. Jordan grabbed the big seagulby the neck and put it under his arm with the help of dave. We headed off to the pond,bird and all, hoping that one of the other people in the group would have plyers. Dave and I did our best to clear a path in the bush for Jordan and the seagull. Jordan was havin trouble carrying the seagull because it was constantly tring to bit him and flail its wings. When we got out of the brush we couldnt see anyone so I ran ahead and called out for someone. Jeff H heard me and came to the rescue with plyers. He got the barbed luer out but the wound was saldly starting to rot already : (. We released the bird and let nature take its course.

This is the exact oposit of marisas story in the respect that everyone worked together to help the bird.

I'm Glad to see i'm not the only one willing to rescue a hurt animal. I won't share my stories cause it would take quite a while. But thanks for doing your part to save wildlife. If only more people could be like you maybe just maybe our planet would be a lot nicer.

Wonderful job !! Way to go girl !! I totally agree with you about people , at the moment.They can be cruel with more then just animals ; even heartless@#$%. Have to get this off my chest , too. My daughter is in grade primary & recently had a toy party. She took invitations to her whole class. One mother called & said they could not come as an older sibling was having a birthday. That was fine. Didn't hear from another soul & no one showed up. No One !! Out of a class of 30. I felt like you did as I wanted to go to the school & tell them all where to go !! (I didn't of course) but oh! how I wanted to !! Mean selfish people !! I feel much better now. And btw , I'll be the first to step in & help if I ever see you !
Also disappointed, Dar
HOW TO .....

Alice, I believe you are talking about bear traps.( From the D shape.) And from what I know they are illegal to set in any public area. Since you seen the trap I'm sure it was public land in which you could report him to local police and fish and game for setting illegal traps and endangering the public and killing non game animals.. Just to help before harm is done..
