Last week

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - Home -

Last week’s mys­tery item was cor­rectly iden­ti­fied by Keith Brown. Mr Brown de­scribed the mys­tery con­trap­tion as a small spring-loaded claw trap for catch­ing “rats, small an­i­mals and fish, Evans patent about 1877.”

Matthew Tuck­ett called it an “ea­gle claw mouse trap” and Danny McCarthy said the trap was a “pretty grue­some one”.

Ste­wart Ed­wards and Dean Midgely also cor­rectly iden­ti­fied the ob­ject.
