Earlier today I wrote about trapper who lives out in the middle of nowhere in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, so when I came across a story about bike riding trappers I knew I just had to write it up.
Shaun Deller taught a workshop out in the other Portland (Oregon) on trapping by bicycle in which participants caught nutria, a large invasive rodent that is harvested for its meat and skin. Check out their video:
The trap that Deller uses seems to do its work quickly, at least in the case of the nutria they caught that day. Fast is good (maybe I should say better); slow and lingering is bad.
