Sometimes I’m a wimp . . and I’m always a wimp when it comes to setting the traps. They scare me and I just almost refuse to mess with them but often, it gets dark before Vince gets everything done and he doesn’t keep the traps set. They need to be set every night and we’ve not been doing it but I’m seeing more and more tracks in the sand around the coop so I’ve put a trail cam out there. Last night I finally got some pictures of critters.
This one seems to come around every evening. He would probably say he’s already been “caught” and we celebrate the anniversary once a year! :)
Seriously, I think these guys come around most every night and I detest them!
Here’s a tail . . maybe a cat? It isn’t a raccoon tail but I’m not real sure that it’s a cat either.
If you look at the far right side of the above picture, and compare the same position in the photo below, you’ll see a critter going out into the woods.
I don’t think it’s a raccoon either . . not sure what it is.
This is why we build our coops like a fortress . . to keep the hungry critters out!
