The video of a guy punching a bear trap has been floating around social media land the past couple days (it is below if you missed it). By no means are we experts on traps, but I watched a few smaller sized traps get tuned the other evening by a firefighter on my shift. Of course, I immediately wanted to see what the traps do, so I got child cpr dummy to volunteer (video below). Will we get many calls for people in traps? Probably not, however, the traps are another mechnical entapment possibility worth reviewing.
1 1/2 coil spring trap typically for small woodland creatures such as muskrat and mink.
