Title: AN ANIMAL TRAP INCORPORATING A BAIT CONTAINER
Abstract:
A mole trap has an elongate hollow body formed in two separable sections (3) and (4). To prevent the mole exiting the trap an obturator (9) is included within the body. The obturator (9) is formed as a bait container having two halves which are held together to retain live bait within the container (9). The bait container (9) is formed of a material which is aroma permeable. The bait is preferably one or more earthworms. Flaps (7) at the ends of the body of the trap may be made of similar material to that of the container so that the presence of the bait within the trap is readily smelt by a mole which is thereby attracted into the trap in which the live bait container (9) retained.
