Cat Trap

If you have a cat on your property that is causing a nuisance, you can set a trap in your yard. Cat traps are available to Town of Cottesloe residents for the primary purpose of trapping stray or feral cats.

Trapping is a very stressful experience for a cat and trapping should only be used as a last resort.

There is no charge to hire the equipment, however a $100 bond is to be paid and will be refunded when the equipment is returned in good condition within two weeks of hire.

Cruelty to animals is illegal, with all users to strictly abide by the Guidelines to Trapping and provisions in Section 19 of the Animal Welfare Act 2002.

Hiring of traps

  • Traps can be hired on a weekly basis
  • Traps may only be hired by Town of Cottesloe residents.
