A dog walker near Dumfries is warning others after his dog became trapped in a snare this morning.
Brian Forrester claims the trap was illegally set in woodland at Maidenbower.
His dog, Mollie, was uninjured after being caught and waited to be freed by Brian.
Fortunately she was uninjured as the snare caught her round the body and she just immediately lay down and waited until I freed her. I shudder to think what the outcome would have been if it had caught her by the neck and she had panicked."
