Only reason I do is to avoid a war with neighbors. My trap cuts their kids pet cats leg off, they turn loose my chickens and dogs eat them, I leave a bucket of antifreeze out, they grind up a beer bottle in my dogs food…. things like that tend to escalate.idk why anybody set a live trap for coons. My dad does this. Keep telling him don’t but I reckon at his age he just likes to see’em hell idk. Lol. He lets them go if they don’t have a pecker. Lol.
I catch’em all and dispatch them and possums on site.
I set out cans. All I set.
