So far, I’ve had to relocate 3 of these rascals. I’ve just been turning the trap away from me and using a pole to flip the trap open. All of them have scampered out without so much as a backward glance. Of course, the pole I’m using is actually the pitchfork I use to lift the cage into the truck bed. Just in case one decides to make a scene........A familiar scene for me. Transported 8-10 of them over a year or so in my G1; none in the G2 yet.
How do you release them? I'd tie a rope to the trap handle, sit in the truck, pull and the 'coon would scamper away. "Safety first"!
Always amazed at how calm they seem through all that.
