Because I don't Think anyone else has shown one yet ....? Here's a 'Humane, Dingo, Foot Snare' (minus any snare). The second shot is to demonstrate the spring arm, in the fired position.








I understand these were designed to be used by what ever govt. dept has a hand in catching Dingo's. However, as far as I know, they didn't really catch on, let along Dingo's.

Might this be a Humane Dingo ....?





Caught with a camera. Because the Foot Snare wasn't a lot of good.

To sell them on ebay you need to state they are for collecting purposes only, antique, etc etc.
Cause in Australia, the use of steel jawed leg hold traps is illegal, and has been for a long time
(even though most farmers in Rural Australia still use them, due to the high price on new, legal traps.)

Funny, we've shipped a bunch over there but haven't seen anyone mention the Padded CDR trap, now provided witht he Expanded Pan (optional). Has anyone on here tried them ?

There are a few around and I've used them myself. The guy selling them about a decade ago, actually sold them under his own business name - the WAC trap. I think it stood for Wild Animal Capture.
So trappers here don't even realise it's a CDR.

When set, they lay very flat and steady which is good in hard ground. I like the PIT system. The pan is a bit small for me but the expanded pan is too big in my opinion. I prefer a medium sized pan that won't fit the target animals foot between the pan and jaws but also won't allow it to stand on pan and jaw at the same time.
I've trapped with Clint Locklear and his big pan CDRs in Texas and I understand the logic but I've never actually had the problem to begin with - target animal prints between pan and jaws.
The problem we have seen with the CDRs is the jaw rivets seizing up, sometimes to the extent that the springs don't have the power to even snap the trap shut. This is even with regularly waxed traps. The solution is to grind and tap out the rivets replacing them with stainless bolt and nut.
Just my honest opinion. I know one trapper who prefers them and another who came up with the big pans years ago. They certainly hold well.

They were used around here in my state, Victoria. Maybe New South Wales as well.
I never used them because they were phased out before my time but they were liked by many of the trappers. The current trapping regs in my state allow for foot snares but only under an 8 hour checking regime - so virtually impossible to use. It was more of a government policy change that phased them out rather than not being effective.
