So, it's not really a dogPROOF trap is it?

If you're going just to release it, don't bother trapping anything.

Feeding wild animals will likely only make your chicken predation problems worse.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

Coyotes love cat, honestly they do... Having a lot of feral cats walking your property is like baiting for bigger predators...

[/quote. Yes I'm saying if the dog proof trap has a push or Pull trigger a cat or small footed dog can be caught. With the push trigger all the animal has to do is get their foot into the hole to set it off. It's not gonna do any damage to the cat or dog but they can get caught in them. I trap a lot but mainly trap coyotes. If anyone wants a trap coons they should use a dog proof trap that has a pull only trigger.

I have seen conversions for dogproof traps that will work by pushing.  The ones I saw inform the buyer that once they are converted they are no longer a dogPROOF trap.

 

Can you please link me to a dogproof trap with a push/pull trigger?
