Queensland Police need your help to find the person who set this horrific trap.

A man was walking his neighbour’s dog, a King Charles Cavalier named Louis, along a well-known track in southeast Queensland called Greendale Way when the poor pup got caught in it. 

Louis sustained bruising and soft tissue damage to her paw, requiring veterinary treatment.

‘Members of the public who are caught setting mantraps can be liable to prosecution as it is a criminal offence under the Queensland Criminal Code and liable to be sentenced to three years in prison,’ Acting Senior Sergeant Brendan Jorgensen said.
