Bear, Muskrat, Mink Traps…or People Rescue?

The video of a guy punching a bear trap has been floating around social media land the past couple days (it is below if you missed it).  By no means are we experts on traps, but I watched a few smaller sized traps get tuned the other evening by a firefighter on my shift.  Of course, I immediately wanted to see what the traps do, so I got child cpr dummy to volunteer (video below).  Will we get many calls for people in traps?  Probably not, however, the traps are another mechnical entapment possibility worth reviewing.
