I'd love to hear what animal people used for their trap, for those who went more literal with it!  
I'll start.

I had insects freed from a spider web.

Ooo that's so clever! I never would have thought of that

I went for a dog in a bear trap because my north Idaho instincts demanded it, haha ;) Excited to read your story!

I went with a plastic dolphin in a sink's s-trap pipe.

These are cool choices. I went with a golden stag (fairy tale).

I went both literal and metaphysical.

First - a spider trapped under a glass.

Second - a woman, her trapped inner animal released.

I had some fun with folklore and went for a kitsune, a magical fox.

Gopher and human. Physical and mental traps. I was afraid to go with just the human.

One of my discarded drafts was strictly the human animal. I tossed it not because of the prompt, but because there was too much story for 250 words...
