They make it a little ways to tree and go hide usually.
No brass balls just no brains, that and 4 top lion hounds tied up a few feet away. We got his back feet in a noose and stretched him, after the trap was of we hid behind the hounds and he kicked out and ran of.
People who steal fur a pond scum, man that frosts me, that's one reason all my rivets are welded and earth anchored deep, at least if they can get the trap opened they don't get a trap.
