Q. Is the Kania #2000 a humane trap?

A. Yes, in the sense that this trap dispatches the animal efficiently and effectively in an instant kill situation. The trap will render the animal irreversibly unconscious within 1 minute. The Kania #2000 meets the ISO (International Organization of Standardization- Geneve, Switzerland) required 3 minute minimum irreversible unconsciousness.

Q. Why not use a live trap instead of a killing trap?

A. A live trap is a very good trap. Especially if you don't wish to kill the animal. However, the drawback to a live trap is that if you wish to let the animal go, it's best to put the animal in your vehicle, and drive it several miles away and let it go. But animals have a tendency to find their way back. The other reason for discouraging letting pests go, is that you are then giving the problem to someone else, mainly in the rural area.

Under the British Columbia Wildlife Act - It is an offence to ship or transport live Grey Squirrels to another location as they are an introduced species and are considered a pest and a detriment to the Indigenous Western Red Squirrel.
