Grape jelly, marshmellows, fruits/mellons and sweets will not attract dogs or cats.

Cheapest dog/cat food with small morsels, mix with grape or cherry coolaid mix, some cheap sugar, anise oil, mini-marshallows, and peanuts if they're cheap. Sprinkle it all with high-fructose corn syrup and mix it up.

Deadly, kinda like a party mix for raccoons.

Oh yeah, of course, cobs of fresh sweet corn cut up into pieces, if it's available.

Large marsh mallows with a smear of plumb loco will tear them up.

I have heard that a wadded up piece of aluminum foil works well. Curiosity kills em.

The peanut butter, honey and molasses mix was like coon nip, I had three coon in as many nights. I hung the peanut butter mix from the top of the trap far enough back that the coon couldn't avoid stepping on the pedal, a trail of dry dog food lured them right in.

Buy one or two Duke coon traps and bait them with small marshmellows.

They like anise and naturally black licorice. You can use anise oil for bait, and put some on a rag up on a branch to get the odor distributed.

I use dog proof traps and dry cat food. Have also used trail mix, with nuts and M&M's, and marshmellows. I do not "relocate".

Deer meat scraps, trout heads and an egg put in a glass bottle and buried for a month or two, deadly in a dirt hole set....

Peanut butter, honey and molasses worked like a charm. Three coons in successive nights, made a trail of dogfood to entice them into the trap.
