We mostly catch critters at night so in the mornings when I go out to tend to the chickens, I’m always halfway afraid to see what’s in the trap. I guess my biggest concern is we’ll catch a skunk. One morning this week there was nothing in the trap so I just left it alone. About mid-morning I went out to get eggs and noticed the trap was sprung but couldn’t see what was in there til I got right up to it.
Not exactly the chicken eating, garden destroying type critter I was trying to catch! Could someone please let me outta here?
Those nosy chickens! They’re watching every move I make and wanting to know what was going to happen to the turtle.
I let him out
And he took his sweet time about walking away. That’s how turtles move, you know . . slowly! He’s probably stuffed since he ate a ton of the marshmallows, which is what I use for catching raccoons!
Of all the things I expected to catch in the trap, catching a turtle never entered my mind.
