ANCHORAGE- Alaska State Troopers are investigating illegally set snares that caught two pet dogs on a private property near Delta Junction.

 
The property is a 2,000-acre hay and barley farm owned by Marti and Kent Steele.
Marti Steele says the dogs injured by the snares are 12-year-old Princess and 2-year-old Sadie. Princess escaped the snare on New Year's Day and Sadie went missing for eight days before returning home in early December.
Troopers say they have suspect information, but no arrests.
One of the Steeles' sons tracked the suspicious snowmobile to an area home after he found one of the dogs, but no one answered when he knocked.
Marti Steele says the family's eight dogs no longer go outside for more than a few minutes.
