A Montana woman was hiking in the Helena Valley area with her two dogs last month when one of the dogs got caught in a trap, which was placed on the trail illegally. The trap didn't have any ID attached to it, so the owner hasn't been identified.

The dog, Maria, broke three teeth trying to chew through the trap and had to get stitches in her leg. However, the vet expects her to make a full recovery.

This is obviously horrible and a nightmare for pet owners - thankfully Maria will be ok, but hopefully the owner of the trap will come forward and own up to what he did.
