I am having mink visitors. My goodness, those things are vicious!! I would like to trap it, and I have access to a live trap, however, I am not sure what to do with it once I get it in the trap. The thought of driving it out far away and releasing it occurred to me, but I hate to make it someone else's problem, and, I understand that is often illegal. The only gun I have is a shotgun, which would blow the trap to smithereens I suppose. I was thinking that I could make a catch pole, and drag it out of the trap and hit it with a baseball bat? Do you think that is realistic? So far that is my best idea. Or, I also thought that maybe if I got it in the catch pole I could just pull the cord hard enough to snap it's neck? Damn thing killed one of my favorite hens and was trying to catch others when I suprised it. It was on a rampage. It even killed a mouse that was in the coop, bit it in the face and just left it there.
