I'm so frustrated. We lost 3 chickens to racoon(s) in 24 hours. We are trapping and giving them lead poisoning... but my gosh. I've done everything I possibly can to protect my animals, but I can't be out there 24/7. THIS WAS DURING BROAD DAYLIGHT!! I called D.N.R. to see if they would rather me "relocate" them, and they said, "Nope. Dispose of them. They are over-populated in this area right now." Dispose of them? My pleasure! After I got of the phone with D.N.R. I wondered to myself - If they are so overpopulated, why haven't they stepped in to do something about it? Sorry for the rant, but I love my animals. I'm sick of them dying... It's just heartbreaking.
