We went out to tuck (lock) the chickens in 2 nights ago and on our way out my son saw a mink run out from under the coop. The next day I drove straight to Tractor Supply and bought a set of live traps - large one & small one = $25.00 on sale. We put seeds and corn in the small one and a big hunk of bone with meat on it (we get them for our dog) in the large one. Nothing in the large one this morning but in the small one there is a opossum! I have no trouble having my husband "take care of it". If we relocate it though instead - will it come back? Is the general opinion that they are dangerous to chickens? Even if they are locked up at night? Thanks! Cindy Edited to say that we live out in the country on a dirt road. If he/she were relocated it would be into the middle of nowhere!
