Predators 13, Steve 2
Well I just spent the last 15 hours locked in a new cook shack getting ready for my daughter's swim team meet and then cooking for it. We have a brand new shack (very nice, donated, expensive trailer with fire suppression system and the works) that needed its maiden voyage charted by a not so gentle soul. So I just got home. I was bemoaning the fact that one of my new babies died last night and I had to find it this morning. Of course it was not one of the two free ones we got. I just don't have time to mess with the live trap and I could see more of my chickens dying. By the way I was in my Toyota Prius, and it is a very low car, when I crested the last hill to our turn off and there were two sets of eyes in the road. I swerved, and a raccoon ended up under the front right tire. No more raccoon. The second set of eyes was a cat. I am not sure how it happened it was very quick. But there is one less chicken predator within 1/4 mile of our house. Gotta go as I have to get up in 4.5 hours and do it again for 15 hours.
