Make sure you check your state laws and regulations befroe trying any of the aformentioned techniques. Here in NY "snaring" or cable restraints are not legal for use. Also it is not legal to set a trap that could result in an animal being suspended (hanging) above the ground. A trap may be set in a leaning pole set but must be secured to the pole it is on (staples or nails) or have a long enough chain that will allow the trap to fall to the ground when sprung.
Always know what is legal in your location!
