The slots shall begin at the container's opening, shall be perpendicular to the container's opening, and shall be a minimum of eight (8) inches deep in length, measured from the opening of the container; and

(4) The trap shall be recessed in the slots so that no part of the trap is less than four (4) inches from the opening of the container; and

(5) The container shall be securely fastened to the ground; or

(c) Set option 3: The trap complies with all of the following design features and set requirements:

(2) The container shall have no more than one opening; and

(3) The container shall be securely fastened in a vertical position to a tree or post;

(4) The container shall be positioned so that the opening of the container faces the ground and is no more than six (6) inches above the ground.
