Hi, we do not own a gun. Thanks for your answer and as mentioned, we do not own a gun. I am also posting my newly built cage and addition that was necessary to host these mandarins and pin-tales. I am worried the entire thing has hardware cloth and the first part I wrapped the entire thing with the hardware cloth even under the plywood outside. But the new addition, I put in, I do not have any hardware cloth under the plywood but I went 8" deep and put hardware cloth all around and even under the door where 4X4 lays, I have hardware cloth wrapped.
In the old coop that was built last week has matching shingles with the house but the new one has the plastic roof very well secured. I wonder if raccoon will burst through the roof. I do not think these raccoon has either rabies or distempers(sP) since they do not act strange, mind their own business eating seeds but I did see couple of days back that they were looking toward the ducks. I am not sure waht to do.
Please tell me how to kill coons in a humane. way
PLease look at the construction in my next thread and indicate if a huge raccoon ( that I do have around this house) wll bust through the roof.
