    Since I knocked him out cold last week he's been giving me the old hairy eyeball, but staying clear. I've out of the blue chased him a couple times to reinforce the lesson and this morning netted him. He's too heavy for me for pack around for long, but I held him for about 10 minutes, then tossed him out on the lawn.

    So far so good. Hopefully if I keep up with the intimidation he'll stop attacking.

    hahahahaha!!! Good job!!
    I never could get Popcorn to be intimidated by me, not for lack of trying, but more on the... well, he can have that side of the yard approach.
    Am so glad he's behaving better then he was.
