Rabbits: Carrots; lettuce; apples; rabbit pellets
Skunks: Greasy chicken bones; canned fish; cheesy popcorn; crisp bacon

Step 2: Set the trap

Set the live animal trap in the location of the nuisance animal. You can camouflage the trap by placing twigs and leaves on top. You can also leave an unset baited trap for a few days to entice the animal.
