This is what I found about 100 yards off a popular grouse hunting trail today. Coincidentally I flushed a grouse I flushed a grouse in the area.

Another dog was killed the day after Christmas. The trap broke the dogs jaws but it was still able to pull the trap loose from the anchor and make it home before dying on the porch. Questions still remain whether the trapper was trespassing. That brings the total of known and recorded dog deaths in 2015 to 7 but there are still more "incident" records forthcoming.

Based on DNR records another 7 dogs were killed in body grip traps in 2015. That is only the dogs that were found so we have no way of knowing how many dogs were killed and thrown into the brush.

The same body grip trap sets that have been killing dogs for decades are still legal in MN.

The new legislative session is starting soon. We will be working to get SF 1325 and HF 1655 passed this session so that no more dogs will be killed this fall. Our grouse population is starting to climb again so hopefully we will be able to hunt during the 2016-2017 trapping season instead of hanging up the gun when trapping opens in October.

It's important to remember that no state has shown a reduction in fur harvest from body grip trap regulations that protect dogs. Not one. It's never necessary to risk killing someone's dog in order to trap.

A dog was snared near Andover last week. It was missing for 3 days until it was found in a snare near a bait pile. Fortunately the weather was mild and the dog didn't struggle or get the snare tangled.

Bait piles made from road killed deer and animal carcasses are commonly used to snare fox and coyote and sometimes other predators. They can draw dogs for at least a mile.

It's not necessary to use lethal snares. Non-lethal "cable restraint" snares with relaxing locks are just as effective and don't kill when properly set.

MN allows the use of all types of snares including the Power Ram snare that is as lethal as a body grip trap. The loop is yanked shut with an oversized body grip trap spring and kills within a few minutes.

Here's some encouraging news. More and more hunters are speaking up and contacting their legislators demanding a stop to the unnecessary killing of our dogs.

A new bill has been introduced in the House. It contains several commonsense additions to the previous bill that should gain the support of the trapping organizations. One addition is a penalty for killing a dog in a body grip trap. Right now it is not illegal for someone to kill your dog in a body grip trap. Another addition is mandatory reporting of killing a dog just like it's mandatory to report killing an otter out of season.

The number of the bill is HF 3884.

The House is where the trapping bills are being held up. Please contact your representatives.

So the bill makes it illegal to kill the dog and it also makes reporting the kill mandatory? How do you think thats going to work? You're going to rely on trappers to self report a dog killing when they know its going to result in them being fined?

I think you'll see the same numbers of dogs being killed but trappers that find them will be more likely to take the approach of burying the dog and keeping their mouth shut in order to avoid a fine or whatever the punishment will be for trapping a dog.
