I was deeply saddened to read the article in this morning’s (Nov. 21) Missoulian about Monte getting caught in a foothold trap at the Florence Bridge Fishing Access site.

But, wait a minute. Trappers have been known to say that wild animals don’t really feel pain when caught in a leg hold or snare. So, wild animals don’t experience excruciating pain or extreme fear, but dogs do?
