I know I'm sitting myself up for an attack. And I'm NOT saying I'm going to do it. I'm at my wits end. I'm poisoning the rats. I don't care anymore. My dogs and cats and birds CAN NOT and WILL NOT get to it. I have no neighbors real close so there pets can't either. I'm out after dark and out before day light to pick up any dead rats. I have foxes and coons who think they own me. They are wiping me out. I've tried live traps over and over. Has anyone ever thrown poisoned bodies out where those other predators could eat them? Just curious. I know it is a horrible thought.
