Last night befoe I went to bed, I hear a few of my cats outside making a ruccus. Turned on the porch light, thinking it was the local Tom cat after my girls, but to my surprise, it was two armadillos running around the yard! They looked young, and like they were playing. When they would run near the cats, they all jumped and screamed, and ran. Went outside this morning, and there was a dead, 9 week old kitten laying on the ground where the dillos had been. No blood that I could see, but looked like his neck was broken. Did the armadillos kill him?? Do they go after chickens?? They are fairly new in my area, migrating north from Arkansas, and I had one that did a lot of damage to plants a few years back. That one evidently got hit by a car, so didn't have any more problems till now. I know they eat grubs and vegetation, but do they kill small animals? May just set up camp in the back of the pickup tonight with the 12 gauge, sure don't need any more predators than I have already, and my garden may also be their next target! Any ideas?? Thanks.
