Ideally, it would be best to handle the pigs before first light, so they’re calmer and easier to euthanize. If you can’t handle the pigs first thing in the morning, then you may want to consider buying a Trap Cap to ensure that pigs can’t climb out. We wouldn’t recommend this. If it’s going to be a while until you can get to the trap to handle the pigs and you have soft soil, we suggest using 30-36” rebar, placed inside the trap at the same angle as the anchor stakes, with 6” out of the ground in between anchor stakes. These inner stakes will prevent any pigs from rooting under the netting on the ground when they’re bored for an extended period. Place the rebar stakes 6-8” closer to the t-posts than the anchor stakes.
