I got a trap stolen this morning it was a crappy trap so i thought i had set and had some wire instead of a steak to hold it in. There were some fox track there from a previous day so i set it hoping to catch the fox instead what happened was i got a coyote which i didnt expect to happen so it ripped the wire and took off with my damn trap!

I always use more wire than I think necessary now. I had that same thing happen to me. If you use a single strand of wire it is very easy to break if it gets bent over and over the same way. For yotes and fox I wrap the wire around a tree (the middle of the wire) and take the two tag ends and wire them to my trap. Losing traps sucks, I had one stolen from me by the road workers. One went down by the bridge I guess and ran off with a #1. If it hasn't rained I'd try looking for your trap. You might be able to track the animal because your trap might ruff up the leaves.

First off never ever use wire to anchor a canine trap. Always use a stake.
