this moment {gotcha!}

joining soulemama



the chicken killer has been caught!
now, about that possum that's digging up my garden...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

addendum:  about five minutes after a catching this little bandit we heard squeaky raccoon talk coming from the porch.  We check out of the window and saw a much larger raccoon standing next to the cage.  When we opened the front door, he lazily walked off of the porch and watched us from the stairs.  He matched the description of the actual chicken killer much better.  He was very large.  Looks like we're still on the hunt (if you count a non-kill trap and release program as a "hunt").  sigh...

Oh man. We've been really lucky to not have any chickens attacked even though I SEE the raccoons around. Sigh.
(Oh, I got the vitex and started taking it yesterday--I'll let you know how I feel in a few weeks! Thanks!)
