Hidden traps placed on path to natural pools

POINTE BLANCHE: Someone has placed numerous hidden traps on the path to the Natural Pools in Back Bay, Pointe Blanche. These are dangerous for animals and humans.

A resident on her afternoon walk with her dogs down to the pool had to get help to pry one of her doggies from a trap he inadvertently stepped on and had his paw trapped. She had to call for help to free her dog.

Presumably, these traps were placed by someone who wants to catch the numerous goats in the area. These goats have an owner and the traps, who did not place the traps.

The traps are covered with brushes making them really hard to spot. This means when visiting the pools it is easy to step on one whether you’re an animal or human.

This natural attraction is popular with tourists as well as many residents. This is an extremely dangerous situation for hikers and other nature lovers.

The best course of action would be to have the traps removed, before someone or another animal gets seriously injured, said the resident whose dog was hurt.
