Bernard Bracely, field supervisor with Little Rock Animal Services, pulls a feral puppy out of a trap Thursday morning that he had set at the Arkansas State Fairgrounds in Little Rock.

Little Rock Animal Services Manager Tracy Roark estimates that his staff has caught about 200 stray animals by traps this year, and about 60 percent of those were euthanized because of illness or aggressive behavior.
