    Scrapper dog and yes he was tied on a 5 ft line when he caught the rascal too notice there's not a hair left on that sucker

    Here's my other 2 live traps all three and myself are proud members of the Anacoco creek catch and release program, they catch the critter and maul the living daylights out of them and I take the blasted varmints off to the creek and (release) feed them to the catfish and turtles.

    I never kill what I catch. Mom and babies were relocated nearby in the Blue Ridge Parkway, same place the other 3 opossums and 3 raccoons went. The only one I released at home was the neighbors cat. I was able to "pet" the babies through the wire. They were each attached to a nipple in the pouch. It was a first for me. (I understand how illegal that is, but I've never been one to follow man's rules).
