    Wish me luck!!

    Our neighbors have had 5 chickens killed in the last five nights, so we're setting the live trap tonight. [​IMG] I'm setting one trap at each of our neighbors. I would set one in our yard too, but our dogs do a good job keeping out "varmits".

    Someone suggested baiting the trap with sardines - anything else work exceptionally well? Any tricks to keep the cat from getting caught?

    Not the sardines that can be a dinner bell for cats.

    What are you trying to catch and please make sure it is legal for you to set the traps on other than your land (this is a separate issue than having their permission or not)?
