    For the past three weeks I have had racoons envade my chicken and duck coop, killing my ducks and chickens, and stealing eggs... I have hade an expirienced friend come over and place racoon traps on my property... But the racoons would steal the bait without getting traped... I need help! I dont know what else to do..

    Ducky Land!
    You can stake down the traps with tent sakes and bait the traps with tuna, sardines, peanut, butter, and marshmallows. Also once you catch it kill it cause unless you take it 30+ miles away it will come back. Good luck and sorry for your loss.
