Just visited one of my Larsen traps to find it empty. A fox had pushed the sprung lid down and grabbed a fresh caught magpie and in doing so had slid the top to the decoy open a couple of inches. He must have grabbed the decoy as it tried to squeeze out in panic. The clip hinges and my string had slid along creating a gap. Will now secure the lid on all my traps on three sides with string.
Last year we were lamping one night on a friends estate where he runs about thirty Larsens. Picked up a fox on the lamp and shot it, it was actually trapped in a Larsen,he will never live that one down.
