Animals trapped

Woman and dog caught in steel traps.

Krystle Morrow and her three-year-old border collie Koby were walking through a field north of the Nation River on Thursday at about 2 p.m., as they often do, when Koby wandered off.

“I heard Koby yelp and I wanted to help him,” Krystle said in an e-mail to the Sun on Friday. “As I leaned down, I put my hand into another trap that was hidden under the snow.”

That trap snapped closed on her left hand, holding her and Koby by steel cables to a log heavy enough to keep animals from dragging it away.

In tremendous pain, and with her dog’s paw injured as well, the five-foot-tall Morrow slowly but surely hauled the log, dog and traps — estimated to together weigh about 110 lbs. — all the way home, over a distance of more than a kilometre.
