EL PASO, Texas — U.S. Border Patrol agents have discovered a booby trap of thin wires stretched along a patrol road in a remote stretch of desert in southern New Mexico, and say it could injure or kill border patrol officers.

Saturday’s discovery is the second wire trap found at the U.S.-Mexico border this year.

The trap — two sections of thin wire strung tight across the road — was spotted Saturday night by a local rancher, Border Patrol spokesman Doug Mosier said Tuesday.

The quarter-inch wires were tied to a cattle fence along the border, strung across the road and affixed to a mesquite tree in a stretch of rugged desert about 100 miles west of El Paso.

One wire was about 4 feet off the ground and the second appeared to sit about a foot from the ground.
