A capture cage (cage-trap) makes it possible to capture live animals without injuring them. Simply install a bait (cat food, tuna, etc.) and activate the device. When the animal enters the cage to reach the food, the door closes.
We offer citizens of our partner cities a capture cage rental service to catch a stray cat or wildlife (raccoon, skunk or groundhog). Using a capture cage to dislodge an animal is a last resort. You should be aware that dislodging an animal from its territory only makes way for a new, unwelcome tenant. Prevention, tolerance and healthy cohabitation are always preferable. If the tips offered here don’t work, you might consider renting a capture cage.
Never leave a capture cage unattended for a long time, in the sun or in extreme cold.
Because of the cold and the risks for the animals, we do not rent a cage during the winter. This service resumes when weather permits.
