A rabbit trap is easy to build. I use mine for squirrels and have trapped and removed around 30. We used to have rabbits around, but the neighbor's cats took care of those.

I learned early not to leave the trap set overnight. I catch a 'possum every time. Last time it was one about 2/3 grown. When I turned him out he went through the chain-link fence like it wasn't even there. I knew rabbits can do that but never thought a big-ol 'possum could do it.

Luckily the cage was inside the garden near the fence. I draped a tarp over the fence to protect me from a possible spray. Reached over the fence with a long piece of Mahogany I had laying around. Spent about 20-30 minutes until I could get the cage to open. He just walked out and crawled out the way he came in.
Supposedly they are very unlikey to spray during the day when not confranted directly. YMMV
Those cages are very hard to open from the other side of a fence with a long pole...

they also don't spray if you just leave them in there for 36 hours on a 105 degree day. My dad found that out in his garden. Last year: 22 possums, 5 coons, and 2 skunks. All went to sleep while he was at work each day.

I think I'd be a little nervous releasing a coon on the other side of the river. Aren't supposed to be nasty?

Don't be too sure. We live in a seniors mobile home park and a few years back were so infested with rabbits I bought a BB gun and had at it. Just stinging them a few times seems to work, but I did kill a few more by accident than intentionally.
I stopped worrying about the neighbor's reaction when a couple of the old ladies in the park asked me if I could come over and shoot their rabbits :-).

Got your head in the gutter eh? Guess it had to happen. Old age gets all of us. The gutter is the only refuge left.

Poor Dave must have _left_ the gutter at some point. One wonders why. <snort>

Maybe Dave found something better than the gutter ~ as unbelievable as that may sound. :)

I've got a nice upscale rut here for sale. It's not as deep as a gutter, but it's every bit as cozy. *g*

But how do you find it? I bet if we come up with a "search motor" where you just type in what you want and this thing finds the information, we can make hundreds of dollars, maybe thousands, even. We can call it something catchy like GoogaBing.

The air rifle should work. I once dispatched a skunk [that twice sprayed the dog] outside my master bath window with a .22 CB Cap. A 29 gr. bullet that I once chronographed ~600 fps. Every bit as quiet as an air rifle. I've been keeping the squirrel population in check in my own backyard with a .177 Gamo Quiet Cat [or some such title].

We are having some Armadillo problems and they are tilling up our lawn as well as the neighbor's I caught one in the yard a few weeks ago, late at night, and didn't follow instinct and get the shotgun.
I asked the neighbor if they minded if I shot one with a shotgun or pistol. She said you'll be in a lot more trouble with us if you don't shoot the little S.O.B.'s
