Concerned about animal traps

By November 10, 2010


I was out walking my dog at the Cottonwood Apartments in Placerville, then to my deep concern, we discovered set-spring animal traps with some kind of foul-smelling bait inside. Then I discovered more piles of suspect food around.

The policy of Cottonwood is to allow “compassionate pet companions” upon a doctor’s notice. I have lived here almost a year and only occasionally do I see a pet dog or cat that might have gotten away from the owner.

What I do see is little children playing outside, innocent of the dangers of these spring-set animal traps.

It’s an upsetting, unnecessary measure being taken in previously a safe community.
