We heard a little screech (well sort of) and my Bella was barking... so DH goes out to see what was going on. The Opposom was up the lilac (Thank you Bella). Dh then decides to hose it out but low and behold it wouldn't get out. This is a 6:15 this morning. So DH grabs the BB gun and pelts him. I would have rather him take the .22 but it was early and it was in the lilacs between our neighbors house and ours and I really didn't want him hitting his house! Do you think this is enough to keep the critter away? DH's putting the Have a heart trap out tonight so maybe we'll get him and be able to dispose of him... Let's just say my chickens are going to be ok come Heck or high water... if I have to set up camp in the coop so be it! Heck they may actually like that! LOL! Thank Goodness they weren't free ranging we let them out for a few hours at night when we're outside but other than that we keep them in their coop and run!
