I found all four of my ducks dead in the coop - Page 3

We still have not caught it😡 We have four different traps set up with a variety of bait. So far he hasn't killed anything else. But, it's really just a waiting game that I'm not enjoying! Every morning info out to the coop expecting the worse.

Unfortunately hardware cloth the entire area may be the only way-complete floor and all....$$ but peace of mind...I did have an electric victor trap from tractor supply $50 which I got for mice BUT have caught some pretty large squirrels with it. (Thought it was mice getting into the garbage but was proven wrong....
Not sure if this would be big enough plus want to keep the birds out of it as well....

It has to die. May a something to stab through. My 13-year old son is the critter killer here at my house. I don't really have the nerve. A 22 rifle could shoot between the walls but if you leave to find one it probably will leave too.

I am the original Red Neck Woman, the Wildbunch AKA my children, and my husband have recently moved to the boonies. 3 1/2 acres with 3 ponds and surrounded by woods.
