    I had noticed something trying to dig under their tractor yesterday morning. So I camped out with the 3 dogs and kept whatever it was at bay for the night. We are planning to trap it, but can't get the trap until tomorrow. I'll have you know that 4 week old meaties peep all night long...

    I couldn't stand the thought of losing our investment in time, effort and money to a predator. I had a big tent and an air matress, it wasn't so bad. My husband had to work over night so the dogs kept me company and served as my protection. [​IMG] If the trap is delayed another day, you can bet your bottom I'll be out there again tonight!

    That takes some dedication. I would have been terrified my meaties would have either escaped their tractor and ate me or slept on me and crushed me, lol.

    What a dedicated person you are. You must love them very much. [​IMG] I would do the same thing if my DH would not think I was nuts and call the men with the white jackets that hug you. [​IMG]

    I slept out with the meaties again last night. No evidence of the beast. Our trap source didn't work out, so now I am worried that if I sleep inside tonight the beast will be back! What to do?
