It is an EZ grip trap made by Livestock Protection CO. I think they said a #7. About $150 each.

Isn't it amazing how this is portrayed since they are doing research.  How the animals don't "struggle".  They are released unharmed...even talked about a pet that was caught.  Absent, all the drama normally presented if this was a fur trapper and a pet was pinched.  Minus all the drama since these animals are caught and released for research.  People don't get that in most circumstances they catch and release research animals in foothold traps.  I wonder if the researchers know the rubber jaws can actually cause more damage to the pad than a properly modified trap.
