    Yesterday I had to run to the feed store for chicken food and while I was there they had a set of traps on sale for 25 bucks. So I got a pair. I set the coon trap out next to the coop so it could get the smell and become apart of the yard, just in case I ever needed it. I learned how to set it and left it out there with no bait or anything in it. Well, this morning when I went out to feed the chickens, there was a possum in the trap! The poor stupid thing caught itself! I wonder if she was the one eating my strawberries? I certainly don't want it eating my chickens!
