Predators 14, Steve 6
It was a short night. I had to stay up late doing work on computer (my fault I procrastinated) and Annmarie woke me up at 0330 thinking she heard the chickens squawking. I was not really awake. She got out of bed and saw a raccoon out our back bedroom window. By the time I got the screen out of the window and she got the flashlight (moon was about 90% full, but not quite enough light to see through a scope) the coon was gone. I went back to bed while she did the armed perimeter sweep. We got a twofer!!! Two teenage raccoons in the trap! She left them alone and came back in the house. The rooster started to crow at 0430. It was hot. Needless to say I did not sleep well. So I dispatched the raccoons this morning. Hopefully, the weekend will see the last of the raccoons vanish.
