We have had a predator for weeks now that just kept playing with the store bought live trap. Always setting it off, dragging it across the back deck, eating suet and whatever it could find, so of course my girls (chickens) became a number one concern. Now we have caught coon, possum, and skunk in our store bought trap so my concern was maybe a wild cat or coyote. So, after careful thought, my husband built me a 5 ft. long by 2 by 2 trap to catch whatever it was. Here is what we caught... Just too big too fit in the old trap! So at 2:30 in the morning, we had to lug this heavy cage off of the back deck to the ground because of his trying to tear and fight through the cage. He was way too loud and aggressive. But it was a success all in all! Kudos to my hubby who supports my hobbies and does his best to keep them safe!! BTW, we will be putting wheels on one end so that it will be easier to move. Hope this gives other ideas on possible traps to catch those predators!!
