One chicken killer down, 2 more to go
I went out this morning to let the chickens out of their run and spotted something in my live trap. It looked like our cat UAC (ugly ass cat). It was a raccoon. So I used the trusty Walther P-22 and shot it one time in the head. Now if I can just catch a possum and a skunk. I don't think it was just the raccoon killing the chickens. Last time I cleaned out raccoons they were dragging the chickens away and I was just finding feathers. Now some of my chickens ended up that way, but not all of them. I think my chicken coop has become the local all you can eat buffet. I suspect the dogs and daylight are my greatest asset during the daytime.
