If you love animals and despise hunting of animals, dreaming of a bear trap means death and ferocious inhumanity. You may have experienced or just heard a situation of animal cruelty. It could be a loss for the animal kingdom such as a species very near extinction, a beautiful race of animals being threatened or an animal being injured or killed in an inhumane, cruel way.
If you are not an animal activist or you believe in the sport of hunting, a bear trap dream indicates a passion for sport hunting or conquering a situation. You feel the need to exercise power over a situation or it could be simple wish fulfillment and expressing your love for hunting.
