In this instructable I will show how to make a simple and cheap live trap.
Just remember if you release the fluffy bunny then take it at least 5 miles from your house or it will come back!
A length of wood - Sizes are not critical but should be at least these sizes or the rabbit wont fit in the trap
36 inches - 900 mm x 10 inches - 250 mm x 1/2 inch - 12 mm
Some stiff wire - I used some square mesh left over from a rabbit hutch (irony there)
A few staples
Some left over scraps of wood laying round the work shop.
Pliers to bend the wire mesh.
Cut the wooden base to length with the saw, try to make the cuts at right angles so things look neat.
Cut the wire so that you have enough to form a cage round the base about 10 inches square (250mm square) +1 inch to wrap under to fix with the staples In my case that was a length the same as the length of the base + 1 inch at each end (3' 2" or 950 mm) this was cut to 10" +10" +10" + 2"=32 " WIDE.
I turned an inch over at the edge at 90 deg to fix under the base with the staples.
Measure 10" along and fold again at 90 Deg to make the side and top.
Measure 10" or the width of your base for the top and fold down at 90 Deg for the other side
Leaving 1" to fold under to fix to the base on the other side of the base.
When you fix the mesh to the base with the staples leave 1 inch over hang at each end.
