    In live traps, do the animals usually run back and forth hitting themselves against the walls until they are dead or do they eventually tire themselves out?

    Some animals fight, while others just relax and wait to see what happens. It can vary by species and by individual.

    We had a racoon problem; borrowed a trap from a local friend (ex-trapper). First racoon was very pissed that we caught it. Second racoon could care less, lounging in the trap.

    It seems like animals like squirrels and birds are more likely to freak out in them.

    Every animal I have trapped is still alive when I check it. Skunk, cat, raccoon, possum, etc.

    A male cardinal. I let it go but it was not happy with me.
