Pin It

During the US-Vietnam war, many human traps were created to fight the American army. All were deadly with many sharp pointed rods. It was really disgusting to see these traps built to kill.

Our Cu Chi guide was a Vietnamese officer in the US army. When the US army retreated from Vietnam, he insisted to stay in his homeland as his family was there. He became the Prisoner-Of-War in Vietnam for four years, going through sessions of education about communism. Now he is given a good job as a tour guide in Vietnam.

This is a dog trap that was created to trap dogs of the American troop.
