I've trapped for several years and every year I experience something new. A few days ago I checked one of my traps to find that a coyote had been caught and somehow jacked my double stakes out of the ground. To say the least the coyote was gone and so was my trap. Today, as I drove up on one of my traps I could see that I had a coyote. As I got closer I could also see that something wasn't right with his paw that was in my trap. After getting right up to the coyote I still could'nt tell what was wrong due to the trash and dirt caked around his paw and my trap. After dispatch I found a trap on his paw (my trap) and the chain to the trap was caught in the trap that was anchored to the ground. This guy stole my trap two days ago, ran around with it on his foot, and then still decided to step into another trap with the same foot two days later. I got my coyote and I got my trap back all at once. By the way, I can see how he jacked my previous stakes - he weighed in at 71 lbs. This was the largest eastern brush wolf I have ever caught.
