    For months now this little 4" eastern mole has been tearing up the backyard and killing the grass. My dad wanted it gone so I kept on the look out so I could dig him up when I see him. And just on a regular day hanging out with the chickens, a couple of the girls did their "I found something strange!" bok bok bok, so I head over there to find a small patch of ground moving and pulsing. So I got out the shovel and a container, and carely dug the litle guy up. I took some pics of it before letting it go in a worm rich forest trail. Strange little fella, and quite a treat since moles are rare around here.

    Kinda neat little guy. I used to have moles. Gave up trying to catch them so [​IMG] to you.
    The cats have left them on my deck occasionally, but by then they are in no shape to relocate.

    Moles are so cute. I caught 6 last year and haven t had a problem with them this year.
