Big Lake Library/Jordan Lake Park

Jordan Lake ParkSo me and my wife are out walking dogs at Jordan Lake Park, the park right by the Public Library in downtown Big Lake, just the other day right after it snowed. I frequent this park and often clean up trash and consider myself to be a park volunteer of sorts. Anyways the dogs are running the woods, I have their tracking collars on. A kid comes out the trail and asks if we are looking for our dogs. He was carrying a rifle, said he’s checking traps. Has some rabbit snares and caught a few.

Although I applaud him for his effort and skill as a young trapper, I thought that at a park we would be safe from traps.
