Resident Report: Leg Hold Traps Being Set Along CSX Right of WayDecatur Metro | November 29, 2012 | 11:52 am

Someone has set a leg hold trap of the type used to trap coyotes on the CSX rail line right of way between the Durand Mill and Westchester neighborhoods. My wife was walking our dogs down the right of way this afternoon–as many in the neighborhood do–and our dog got her leg caught one of these traps. My wife managed to get our dog’s leg out of the trap, but sustained a fractured wrist in the process.
It might be worth posting a note to let people in the Chelsea Heights and Westchester neighborhoods know that someone is setting leg hold traps along this right of way. LOTS of folks around here walk their dogs down that right of way.
