it happened in the middle of the night. or the wee hours of morning. depending on how you look at it. i heard a strange noise, like scraping metal. after wandering the house a bit, peering out windows, checking on kids, i was stumped.
back to bed. then it hit me. metal. the right side of the house. the chicken coop! i scrambled for a flashlight. by the time i made it to the kitchen window to see, sans flashlight, blackberry was clucking something terrible. and then i saw it. the largest raccoon i have ever seen. and he got her. i checked this morning. all i see are feathers.
she was my favorite.
