you can hide the foot snares, make your own. Dig a hole, put bacon grease and hone at the bottom of it, under the tube full of slanted spikes. He jams in his paw and he's hooked to 200 or more lbs of drag log. The trail will be obvious. Let him exhaust himself rather than tearing at a tree with his full, initial strength follow up, carefully and brain him quietly. if all you have is a slingbow climb a nearby tree before you arrow him. This is how you keep bears from digging up your food caches. A bungee cord can power a snare for dogs. Lag bolt a 5 gallon bucket horizontally to a tree. Have a 6" hole in the bottom of the bucket, with expanded metal mesh over the hole They dont like to stick their heads into places that they can't see thru A slit in the side of the bucket admits the snare loop Bait in the back/bottom of the bucket and a trigger between it and the open end. You have to rig something that wont leave him howling and yelping. Naturally, these are for shtf use only.

Chunks of PVC pipe, buried at a low angle, bait at the bottom end, a slit in the PVC for a mole trap, and any rats in the area wont be digging at your cached food, either.
