Abstract

The Kania® trap equipped with side wings and baited with a pine cone quickly killed nine of nine red squirrels (Tamiasciurus hudsonicus) in enclosures. Mean times to loss of consciousness and heartbeat were estimated at ≤65 sec and ≤91 sec, respectively, after firing the trap. Thus the Kania® can be expected to render ≥70% of captured red squirrels irreversibly unconscious in ≤3 min (P < 0.05).
