A woman in Burnham-on-Sea warned others to be wary after her dog got his head caught in a snare.
The dog (Max) was being walked along a public footpath on Withy Road in Highbridge when he got his head caught in a snare which was staked along a fallen tree. Max was freed from the snare uninjured but was very traumatised.
The barbed snare was set on a badger run with the loop of the snare at 'animal level'.
The area is very popular with dog walkers.
