    I just set a trap for a raccoon this evening. We lost 3 hens last week, then our rooster some time during the night, last night. Of course, I didn't know it was a raccoon until tonight when I went out to close up the coop. I was walking back towards the house and shined my flashlight over by the fence and there he was, creeping along. Hopefully he likes canned potted meat, too. :D
