At the 2015 WI Conservation Congress meeting, I was surprised to see there was a question pertaining to the possible legalization of what I believe they referred to as leghold cable restraints? Does anyone know anything about that technique and; if legalized, is it something canine trappers would likely use? I guess I'm unsure what type of species this type of trap could effectively catch.

See page 13:
dnr.wi.gov/About/WCC/Documents/spring_he...ingQuestionnaire.pdf

It seems like something different than a neck snare, but maybe I'm misinterpreting. I'm confused. I see it mentions that it would be used for canines (if it becomes law). I guess I can't envision how this would work. I am fairly rookie trapper though. They refer to it as a "spring activated foot cable restraint" or "foot activated cable restraint.
I suppose the more options the better, but I can't visualize what they are talking about here.
Any idea about this? I wonder if it's something WTA is pushing. I may have to check w/ them.

Yah, I see that in the pics when I look it up too :huh:
I'm not a trapper myself. We need Duane to pop in and give some insight.

I never heard from Duane. I think everyone is stumped on this 1 though. I talked to a guy that's a lifelong trapper/trapping instructor/owner of an animal control business. Even he didn't know what this was. Surely then, the citizens at the Conservation Congress meeting didn't likely understand what the question pertained to. Odd.
