This 100 Year Old Butler Mouse Trap Has A Very Different Trigger. Mousetrap Monday

In this video we test out an antique metal mouse trap with a unique trigger system called the Butler Mouse Trap. We then feed wild animals in the snow with the mouse that we catch.

    As recently retired pest control professional, I can't believe this trigger system is not in wide spread use! I wish I knew of this trigger system 20 years ago. If you have the means Shawn, if you could manufacture a run of these (or similar) and marketed them, I would think they have the potential to be a top seller. Rat size especially.

    Trapping animals has been a part of human behavior for thousands of years. I watch every episode you make, I think that's because we all have a bit of hunter in all of us. Thank you.

    You've got a great channel. It's too bad that our weak culture has responded in a way that the USlikes algorithms have basically crushed your views. Keep it up, there are still those of us who appreciate the work! Thank you!

  40. Branson Winslett

    Branson Winslett2 months ago

    Hi @Torrie Starfrost, yes, his channel got hit with repeated flags from weak minded people who couldn't handle seeing destructive vermin being killed by the traps. That's why he had to construct the wooden housings that block the view of the actual trap kill. Many of his videos regularly hit a million + views before the simpletons at youtube and emotionally weak viewers began flagging and restricting his videos and changing the recommendation algorithms. The fact that you see them regularly means that you've either watched the videos and liked them or even watched them for more than a few min. Thanks for your response and I hope you have a great day!

  63. Igor Svačić

    Igor Svačić2 months ago

    Shawn we should make a betting league. After you put a mouse for wildlife to eat we should all bet on what will eat it. And there should be odds, if you guess correctly and the answer was opossum or skunk you get 1 point, if you guess on some more rare animals you should get more points. So, pick accordingly on how much gamble you have. The answer should be shown allways in next video from video before. And than after some time the wnner should recieve some small prize. Perhaps you make some jewelry in style of native arrow heads or something

It would be interesting to see with your creativity and filming equipment. Thanks for the great videos and entertainment.
