The corral trap has been locked open for several days.  The hogs have become accustomed to coming and going.   Come in and get a bite to eat, then depart.   But today, the trap is activated.   Trigger is in back of trap.   They just need to bump it and the door slams shut.  No escape.

Trapped!

No more rooting hay meadows for these critters.

Big Boar Feral Hog caught in corral trap.

In less than two hours,

he escapes by crawling over the 52′ panels.

Our traps will need to be modified

if we hope to keep these big hogs.

He has been very careful

It isn’t easy to trap feral pigs

They are back and I think it’s about over for them.

That’s it.  The trap door has slammed shut. They are captured.   No longer will they be rooting our hay meadows or eating out deer corn.   It’s over for them.

What’s this!   Where are my captured pigs?  The mesh size on the cattle panels is 6″ X 8″.   Somehow these pigs were able to escape by crawling through those small openings.  In less than fifteen minutes from the time they were captured, they all escaped.

Plan B?
