Why don't trappers make their traps more selective?

- Dog-proof raccoon traps work only for racoons, so they can't do double duty (like the traps that kill dogs can).
- Elevated traps work only for animals that climb; like racoons, fishers, martens, perhaps bobcats, etc. They can't do double duty (like the traps that kill dogs can).
- Traps can't always be submerged if the ice is too thick or the water isn't deep enough.
