Our 914050 trap does have a wire connected to the two latches that will allow you to open the cage from the back. If you attach another wire to that wire you should even be able to open it up from quite far behind it. I would do a few test runs of trying to open it up from far away before you actually get the animal inside it so you are comfortable with the process.

An important step is to contact animal control to ensure that you are releasing it in an allowed zone.

Make sure you wear long clothing and wear safety gloves whenever handling the trap with the animal in it. Once the animal is inside you are going to want to cover it up to keep the animal calm. Right before releasing you will want to remove the cover from at least the front half of the trap so the animal knows it can escape. You will want to be in an open grassy area so that the animal has a clean shot to escape. As long as you are a safe distance behind the animal should run right out the front of the trap to safety.

If you sense the animal is being overly hostile or violent when in the trap you will want to contemplate if a live release is the best option. In this situation it is definitely better safe than sorry. Hopefully that helps and if you have any more questions please feel free to reach out. Be safe!
