Live Traps

Live traps are big and bulky and are hard to carry on a trapline. They are predominately found in urban areas and primarily used for relocating animals from around farms, homes and office buildings. These traps capture the animal alive and unhurt. The animal walks into the trap and steps onto a triggering mechanism. A door swings down and locks in place. It is used for trapping the following animals:

  • Raccoons
  • Opossums
  • Squirrels
  • Skunks
