    The snare cant close smaller than 2.5in per law to avoid cubs and other nontarget animals. You could increase that but basically the bear in the trap '"is" the bear you want. I have seen a few methods of releasing bears but none of them seem that easy. One involves a sheet of plywood with a cut out in the bottom and the others mostly use ropes to tie up other sharp parts of the bear while you get the snare off.

    Oh wow.... and I thought getting a skunk out of a havaheart trap was dicey!!!
