Having an issue with stoats stealing eggs.
Any suggestions? Have a trap set but they're not falling for it.

Haven't seen one in many years. Probably as scarce as the rabbits now.

No it's definitely stoats I see them regularly enough. Didn't know they were protected though kinda limits my options.

Set cage traps for rats, and if a stoat accidentally gets caught, release it away from your property.
