Someone in Amarillo has set out a steel jaw trap.

According to Animal Management and Welfare, an Amarillo resident found a dead opossum caught in the jaws of a steel jaw trap on Thursday.  The animal was caught in the leg and apparently drug the trap around for some time before it died.

Animal Management warns citizens that not only are these traps dangerous and inhumane, they are also illegal within the Amarillo city limits.

Animal Management would like to owner of the trap to step forward and claim the several citations the department is holding for them, although they will not get their trap back.
