“It’s one of those things that feels like the first time every time.”
This poor cougar was a bit upset with these DWR officers who were trying to help release it’s paw from a hunters trap out in Utah. It is legal to trap coyotes and bobcats in Utah but when a cougar inadvertently becomes ensnared DWR officers are often called out to oversee its safe release. Safe for the trapped animal and for brave souls that let it go. Hats off to these guys, they are absolute professionals.
