I'm still worried about possible damage to a trapped animal, just how humane is your trap?
This is where we feel The Skunker stands heads and shoulders above the competition. Depending upon the time of day you check your trap, it is highly likely that the animal will be asleep. No trauma, no stress, and to answer your question; very humane.
Will the trap deteriorate in outside conditions or water?
The trap is completely aluminum and spring steal. It is built to last a lifetime. A little penetrating oil on the bushings, spring, and trigger pin will keep the trap performing like new.
