Here is explanation for WALTrailer from source code:

   * A trailer that is appended to the end of a properly closed HLog WAL
file.

   * If missing, this is either a legacy or a corrupted WAL file.

So you probably ended with corrupted WAL files. Before dropping table you
could try to identify corrupted HLog files and remove them manually.

Did you have some heavy write operations before this issue ?
