Prairie dogs are excellent models for a study of polyandry because they are easy to livetrap
, mark, and observe.
In desperation, the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish was called for permission to livetrap
and remove the foxes.

Percentages are calculated from a senescence classification made during sampling to determine vegetation cover on the 20 livetrap
For the next three weeks we set a livetrap
out in the yard.
We caught mountain hares in double entry cage traps using a mixture of Tomahawk model 107 (Tomahawk Livetrap
, Wisconsin, USA) and Tomahawk clones (Jeremy Dewhurst Ltd, Bankfoot, Scotland) and long nets (Rabbit & Net Accessories, Wick, Scotland).
We captured adults of both sexes at the same livetrap
location during each trapping period, indicating the raccoons were occupying overlapping home ranges on our study area.
sites were often maintained and sampled over longer periods to allow the animals to become familiar with these new additions to their environment.
One Sherman livetrap
(23 by 9 by 8 cm) was placed at each trap station on each grid.
2 kilograms, was captured in a wire-mesh, box livetrap
baited with canned fish.
