Rabbit stew anyone? Primitive rabbit trap

I love the look of this old rabbit trap. It has a peg inside where you would attach the bait (a carrot?) and then you would prop it open and with an attached string (no longer attached) you would pull the top down once your unsuspecting prey was inside! I remember as a kid doing this and trying to catch birds with an old cage. Good thing they were too smart to fall for my tricks! Measures 13-1/2 inches by 10 inches and the box itself is 8 inches tall.
