I bought my first coon cuffs this year and realized that it would be easy to catch non target because the trigger is not pull type and the hole is too big. I bought some big washers and narrowed my hole down. I simply used some epoxy and placed washer on the top of cuff hole. The washers are 1 1/4 instead of the big 2 inch hole.
While many non targets would attempt to dig up bait there is always chance that they will put foot in hole.
Something else to consdier, many non targets use their toungue to lick up food and it is possible to catch critter in many of the dog proofs his way. This seems to be rare occasion, but non targets are cuaght that way.

Thats why I don`t like the coon cuff for a DP trap. Its a push trigger, not a pull. Anything that can get there foot in the hole and push down can get caught. Including dogs.

The only saving grace is that there was very little damage to the foot. If a dog was caught it could be released pretty much unharmed.

I have never seen one that bad here in Central NY. Most of them are furred up pretty nice.
The Fox on the other hand are pretty mangy.
I don't care what ya caught it in, I am just glad it is out of circulation, and out of its missery.

Wouln't have believed it if I hadn't seen the pictures....I wonder if he was digging or just stepped in the hole by accident. Only a 2" hole, he must have a pretty small foot...CC
