Cage material question
« on: March 30, 2018, 06:34:50 PM »
Is there any use in traps for 2"×4" welded wire?  Building my dog an area to run and im gonna have some left over.  Figured if I can use it for trapping I will, if not I can use it in my garden.

IMO not much. Early on I made a few cat cages with it and I did catch a few cats but the stuff is pretty poor. An animal can easily get their mouth over a wire and broken welds result. Lot of labor to make a cage. Might as well make one that lasts a while.
