This invention; relates to traps and more par
ticularly to a trap for catching animals, it being
one object of the invention to provide a trap of
such construction that the mechanism for catch-`
ing and killing an animal is enclosed within a
housing where it is a closure for` the open end of
the housing as well as serving as means for strik
ing and killing the animal; It will thus be seen
that since the strikingand catching mechanism
is enclosed~ within the housing, a person will not

animal.
