    When this guy was just stealing cat food off the back porch, he was only a nuisance. When the chickens that roost in the rafters of the barn started disappearing, that was a whole new ballgame. That's it, critter, you're history!!

    Too bad the fur trade has died out. I remember geting almost $35 for a coon skin.

    But it's a move in the right direction!

    Looks about the size of the three youngsters we trapped in the barn. Took a while, but we finally trapped the two older (huge) ones. Had to get a larger trap to get the last ones. I couldn't do the "deed" since I had had coons as pets when I was younger. Their feet are sooooo soft and I love the chitter sound they can make. Good thing hubby didn't think they were very cute.
