THE BUNTINE FOX CAGE TRAP
The Buntine Fox Trap is designed and manufactured in Australia. The wire mesh is also made in Australia. This trap is built to work and to last for decades.
If you are serious about trapping foxes, you need a serious fox trap. The trap has to be long enough for the body and the tail of the fox to be inside the trap before the trap door is triggered behind it. Those who try and trap a fox in a smaller cat or possum trap may find that the trap door will come down on the foxes back, it will reverse out and never go near a trap for the rest of its life. It is now trap-shy and it will continue to wreak havoc on livestock and native animals.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
Set the trap near a carcass in a paddock, on a trail that they use, outside a chook shed, where there are fox droppings - their scats have a pointy end and can be placed high up on rocks, fence posts, gate rails, garden shed shelving - the higher up, the more aggressive is the message to others in its territory, including you.
Drag a dead rabbit, chook or other smelly, aromatic meat including junk food on a rope from around 50 meters out leading into the mouth of the trap, if on acres. Foxes follow the scent looking for the free meal at the end of the trail.
Keep human scent off the trap.
