I know what you mean.
I’m not a massive fan of killing stuff myself. But the locals do this to protect the crops and veggies. They just trap the deer kill them and bury them. So we decided to start eating them. Thought it was too much of a waste.
As for the traps themselves, they are using spring loaded wire traps the grab the deer by the foot. The plate part you see is not like the old bear traps with big jagged teeth like you are probably thinking. The plate just holds the wire open after it’s been spring loaded.
