D. What this limited Trap System Warranty covers
This limited Trap Warranty applies to the following potential Defects:
- Substantial material and factory assembly omissions including missing system components, missing grommets, unstitched seams or borders, or broken mesh bars discovered prior to usage.

This limited Trap System Warranty does not cover the following:
- Reasonable wear and tear of the product, including minor damage to the netting of less than 8 mesh squares in a row. Note that minor damage to the netting may occur during normal use and can be repaired with parachute cord or other twine of heavy gauge and tensile strength (e.g., twisted nylon). Please call for authorization to conduct these types of repairs, to allow us to evaluate the damage, or with related questions.
- Trap preference.
- Physical abuse or unusual damage to the Trap System, including but not limited to burns, cuts, tears, extensive sun damage, damage by corrosive liquids, provided that the defect is caused by such abuse or damage.
- Replacement of any non-damaged components in the Trap System (for example, if a cam strap fails, we will not replace the entire Trap System, but will only replace the damaged part).
- Any Trap System sold by resellers who are not authorized resellers.
- Trap Systems sold “as-is”, “preconditioned”, “reconditioned”, “used”, “returned”, “previously owned”, or any other similar wording indicating that the Trap System is not “new” or of “first quality” or has previously been purchased or used by another consumer.
In the event of a Defect, Pig Brig’s sole and exclusive liability and your sole remedy under this limited Trap System Warranty will be, at Pig Brig’s option, to provide a repaired or replacement Trap System, subject to your fulfillment of “Your Responsibilities” below.

Feral hogs are known to be intelligent, aggressive, and dangerous animals, especially when captured. They are wild animals and should be treated with caution and respect. Some wild animals are susceptible to certain diseases which can be transmitted to humans. Careful and safe practices may reduce these risks but you can still become seriously injured dealing with wild animals and become sick if you have contact with the blood, fluid, or tissue from an infected hog.
Due to these inherent risks, as well as other dangers from trapping wild animals, by using the Pig Brig Trap System, the user acknowledges, fully understands, and accepts the risks of interacting with these animals. Further, the user acknowledges and understands that unauthorized addition, removal, or substitution of any product parts to the Pig Brig Trap System including any unauthorized repairs or alterations performed may lead to unintended product failure. The Pig Brig Trap System is also not designed for long term containment of wild hogs and it must be checked daily, preferably before first light. Failure to do so could lead to unanticipated product failure and the potential serious risks associated with such failure.
The metal T-posts, cam straps, netting, and anchor stakes can all pose a potential danger to other persons if they are not clearly visible. Thus, be careful to locate the Pig Brig Trap System in an area where people will not typically pass. But if you must do so, locate it and mark it so that the Pig Brig Trap System is clearly visible to other persons traveling in the area.
The user is also cautioned to only use the Pig Brig Trap System in accordance with local / regional / national / international laws and regulations regarding the trapping of feral hogs.
