Best way to release a skunk from the Tomahawk Rigid Live Trap X Large Model 609 (Raccoon & Woodchuck?

I am planning on purchasing a trap large enough to catch larger raccoons. However, in the event one catches an unintended critter like a skunk, how does one go about releasing it from the catch location without getting close enough to get sprayed? I ws looking for a trap that allows you to attach a heavy string to pull from a distance to open trap door. I have not seen any reference to this type situation with a skunk.


When you use the Tomahawk Rigid Live Trap X Large Model 609 (Raccoon & Woodchuck sized animals), you will want to throw a tarp or cover of the trap and reach in with gloved hands to release it. Then we recommend moving quickly away from the trap.
