So I spent part of the day constructing a trap for raccoons. I kind of borrowed ideas from other traps and used what I had to create this. I just checked my trap and the animal(I'm assuming it's a raccoon) had gotten in and gotten out, with the food. Here is my trap and any suggestions on how to fix it would be great. The wire ramp has a coat hanger hooked to it, it then goes up to the top of the box through an eye hole screw and then holds the trap door up.. when the ramp is stepped on it pulls the coat hanger out of the eye ring and drops the trap door. I cut the trap door at an angle so it's flat to the bottom of the trap but I think some how he got his little claws in there and was able to open the door back up. It was sure exciting seeing the trap door triggered but then a disappointment when the critter was able to open the door up.
