Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lenflady Works - as long as you put the food in the right spot!
Had a raccoon taking up residence under my deck. So I got this trap and a cheddar cheese biscuit from Red Lobster and put some bacon grease on top (wasn't giving it my good Applewood smoked bacon from the Amish market!). I put the biscuit way in the back - the sucker got in, ate it, AND LEFT! So, on the second try, I put some steak scraps right on the part the animal needs to step on. Got him (or her)! So the trick is to put the food right on the part that trips the door closed. The cage is very sturdy - the raccoon was moving himself around but could not get out. I just think it's rather pricey at almost $50 but I would recommend the product.

had an opossum coming up on the porch after the dog & cats food at night and was using DP coon traps around the porch but didnt want to catch one of the cats in one because they will break their leg if caught, after a week and a half useing the DP traps with no success I went to HD last night and bought this trap with hopes that it would hold up. Set it on the porch and used fruit cocktail in a bowl to lure it in and got up this morning and caught it without a fuss. Held up nicely for an opossum but they usually dont put up a fuss and get rowdy when caught. Real test of durability will be a coon. Its a little wobbley and think a coon would tear it up and escape but for now it did a great job catching the opossum. Turned it loose a mile down the road near a creek.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JB Great for larger animals such as raccoon's, bobcats, rabbits and other animals who become pests.
Had a Raccoon problem and this trap captured the critter on the second try after I learned how to place the bait in the trap. Since the animal weighed about 25 lbs according to animal control it was more that adequate to keep the animal securely caged until it could be removed.

Had a bad armadillo issue tearing up beds and lawn. Got fed up and finally ordered one of these cages. Used no bait and put it against the side of the house where most of the damage was occurring.
The very next day the trap was sprung but the armadillo had gotten out. Problem was the tension bar that holds the door shut is held in place on the door by overlapped metal. Well the overlapped metal was not squeezed enough in manufacturing enabling the tension bar to slip out. Compressed the overlapping metal to the tension bar much more securely and problem was solved. Caught 4 armadillo's over the next five nights transported them over 5 miles and have not seen them since. Have not had any issues either with digging or further armadillo's in over 3 weeks. Trap still working very well for it catches possums about 1 every three days which I just release for they are not an issue to me. Don't clean it keep it smelling from the previous catch, Female smell attracts all the males.

I live inside the city limits but recently a family of possums have been eating my cats' food from their automatic feeder eating as much as 8 pounds in one night. I purchased the animal cage to catch and release the creatures safely in a forest nearby. I caught my first possum within an hour of setting it just at dusk. I caught 3 others within the next week and now I'm possum free! It's easy to use and worked like a charm.

I was concerned it would be to small for those pesky raccoons.. But it's not. Works great and easy to use.

After trying many deterrents for feral cats invading our backyard (including an expensive motion water sprinkler) we finally decided to go with the trap. Called animal control to confirm same day pickup, went to Home Depot purchased trap, took the assembled product and set it up that same night (extremly easy to bait and set-up). Now 3 days later have caught 3 feral cats with animal control coming before noon every time. Great product, recommend highly!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ATC Very Reliable, well made, sturdy!!!
The Havahart large 1 door live animal cage trap works great. In one months time, I was able to trap, and relocate 1 ground hog, 3 possums, and 4 cats!!!
