I am so sorry, I cannot even imagine. I am so unfamiliar with hunting, I thought that any kind of clamp trap was illegal in the US.

Hopefully, your warning will educate others.

Hugs!

I am so very sorry for all of you. I am unfamiliar with hunting and traps but I would think that there would be some warnings posted for humans. I cannot imagine your pain. Praying for comfort.

Unforgiveable..I am so sorry. This was so hard to read, I can't imagine what you are going through. I hope there can be some justice for Bella. Hopefully the trap had the identification of the owner on it, and he was contacted. Praying for your family.

Oh my goodness there are just no words. I am truly sorry for you and your family - it must be causing nightmares for those who were with Bella trying so hard to free her. Rest peacefully litle Bella - you were taken far too young.
