Trapper is a category profession for dwarves that work with live animals. An adult dwarf whose best skill is in this category will be known as a "Trapper".

Trapper
 

Trapping is used to catch vermin (creatures so small that they are represented by a small dot). This function is performed at a kennel or butcher's shop, and requires animal traps (not cages).

You can also trap animals by building an animal trap and baiting it. This is the only way to capture river, magma, or chasm creatures such as the purring maggot.

Experience is not granted when placing an animal trap, but when inserting the bait.

Only dwarves with the Trapping labor enabled will make animal traps at the carpenter's workshop and metalsmith's forge/magma forge, and their skill level will determine the quality of the resulting trap.
