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.
