squirrel pipe trap

Do any of you know how to set a squirrel pipe trap ? apparently you seal one end put bait in and set it at an angle so squirrel crawls in but cant get back out .Diagram would be good. Thanks.

Don't forget that if any homemade trap for anything other than rats, mice or moles includes a spring, it will not be legal to use unless you submit it for approval under the Spring Traps Approval Orders.

All you need is a 3 ft drain pipe standing upright, with a way for them to get in. We had a terrible stench in our middle barn last year, it was a rotting squirrel  at the bottom of a discarded drain pipe.
