Note: A drop trap is different than the standard box-style trap. A drop trap is used when a feral cat refuses to go in a box-style trap, or one is trying to catch a particular feral cat, such as the last cat in the colony that still needs spay-neuter.
Planned Pethood Taos has a drop trap. Please see Drop Trap photos on this page.
