So, went out this morn about an hour or so after having let my peeps into thier run for the day, was doing the morning walk around, checking to see that all was safe and secure. Well, last nite we apparently had an UNWELCOMED VISITOR and I now am on a mission. I feel violated and very uneasy as I know this creature will now return, in hopes of getting one or all of my babies. Ugghhh, I am glad however, that we just had some dirt leveled around coop, so I was able to find these tracks in the new muck...but I think it is a coon, not to sure, what do you all think??? I am now actively looking for a trapper or a trap, and will have the weapon loaded. I am pretty confident in the security of our coop, but...not liking the idea of this. This is the first of many, I am sure...however....I am going to do whatever it takes to capture it quickly!!! I hate the thoughts of my peeps in thier coop at night, being awakened by a predator trying to make it's way in. It looks as though this visitor walked around the back side of coop and possibly put its paws on the side of coop where I had the hardware cloth window propped open. I know it will be back, now am nervous and needless to say....this thing has given me grouchy pants!!! On a mission...to destroy!!!!
