Wily coyote dragging leg trap eludes troopers

Mar 15, 2019

The Alaska Wildlife Troopers in Soldotna received two complaints recently about a coyote that was running on the snow machine trails off of Treasure Chest Drive in Kenai that had a leg hold trap secured on one of its legs. 

Wildlife Troopers responded to the area and tracked the coyote for about 1 mile, but was unable to locate it. 

The troopers are asking anyone with information on who may be trapping in the area to contact them at the Soldotna post.
