Humane Trapping for Dogs, Coyoteshumane live animal trap when it is necessary to trap, remove or relocate large dogs or coyote. Removal of dogs is often necessary when the animals in question are wild or if they are ones that you and your family are not familiar with.
Handling strange or wild dogs can sometimes be dangerous, even if the dog is wearing a collar or if it obviously looks like someone has been caring for the dog. Domesticated and well-trained dogs many times become lost from their owners and cannot find their way back home. Other domesticated dogs are abandoned by uncaring owners. Under any of these circumstances, an otherwise friendly dog can become dangerous as it tries to defend itself in unfamiliar surroundings.
Plan your relocation of the dog before setting out a humane live trap. You might need to contact your local humane society or city/county wildlife control officers for more information. You will want to know what options you have and what will become of the dog once you have relocated the animal to the suggested locations.

When it is necessary to trap and relocate large dogs or to trap
coyote, use this large
humane trap. This trap is 60 inches long, 20 inches wide and 28 inches
high. When the animal enters the trap, the door remains open until the
trigger pad is pressed. This trigger is located near the rear of the trap
in a position that ensures your targeted animal is well inside before the door
closes behind the animal, preventing escape.
Placement and Baiting of Trap
Your professional dog trap should be placed in an area where the targeted dog frequents but there are other considerations. The area where you place your trap should offer some shelter from the sun if possible. Even under perfect conditions, your trap should be checked on a daily basis. Left unattended, the dog is at the mercy of fleas, ticks, fireants, heat and cold as well as rain or other adverse conditions. A frightened animal will often become distressed and frantic. Wildlife control officers and others responsible for nuisance wildlife removal know that a large, wild dog can damage a trap that is left unattended for long periods.
There are several options for baiting your dog
trap. While many people use fresh chicken or beef, we do not suggest using
raw meet. Raw (uncooked) chicken or beef will spoil and become a danger to
any animal that wanders into the trap. If these types of lures must be
used (for overly cautious animals or when other lures fail) make sure that fresh
bait is replaced on a regular basis.
