Hunter's dog caught in wolf trap
Fred Strand and his 1½-year-old golden retriever, Hank, were walking a trail near Brule last week when Hank stopped to check out a scent.
"He was 20 or 30 feet ahead of me, sniffing the ground," said Strand, of Iron River. "Immediately after that, he started yelping and barking like he was in great distress. I quickly figured out what the issue was."
Hank had been caught in a wolf trap, said Strand, who is a Department of Natural Resources wildlife biologist at Brule.
