Havre, Mont. - Montana K9 Safety, along with Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks, will offer a free workshop for dog owners interested in learning how to free dogs from traps. The workshop is scheduled for Friday, Nov. 3, from 5:30-7 p.m. at the Best Western Plus, 1425 US Hwy 2 (on the hill) in Havre.

However, sometimes traps that attract or surprise targeted animals may also put the family dog or bird dog in a bind.
