The trap is really not the problem; it is the lack of responsibility of the owner to keep his dog at home. Most dogs that are let run in the country end up chasing deer at some point in their life. Most trappers do not put the traps in your dooryard or near your home. So keep your animals at home. Would you complain this much if your dog was killed by a timberwolf or cougar that we are told do not exist here!
Beer on the fairgrounds?
Did I read correctly in the Brainerd Dispatch that beer has finally been allowed on the Crow Wing County Fairgrounds through the curling club? This is a crying shame as I thought the people had spoken that they did not want alcohol on the fairgrounds.
Dogs in the woods
Dogs that get caught in traps are hunting. They have no business in the woods.
