One TV channel just showed how useful they are to open a trap if you or your dog happen to run afoul of one when your out hiking. (A local guy in the Twin Cities almost had his dog choke to death after the dog had one close on his neck and the guy couldn't figure out how to open it.)

Id like to see that TV show production.
My son and I trap and I have absolutely no idea how a zip tie would get you or your animal out of a trap..
Can you supply a cite (utube??).
