    It's a marten. Google them. Very deadly to chickens and I've been trying get this guy for weeks. Hey, where in SC are you? I'm from Summerville.

    It's in the weasel family. Beautiful critter and I hated to dispatch it but it already drew blood in the coop and that CAN'T happen.

    Nope! Can't let that happen. You did what you had to do.
