    Of course I would never do this, but I have heard that if you mix Golden Marlin Fly bait with coke, coons like the sweetness and are overcome by the poison. About two cups of soda and one cup of fly bait.

    Raccoons are predators. Chickens are prey. Of course they'd be happy to have some dinner. Just because they like yummy chicken doesn't mean you shouldn't try and be humane if you decide to kill it.​

    killing is killing. it's a few seconds or a few minutes. Try to understand that the end justifies the means, and you'll do alright [​IMG]
