Caught a 14 lb. snapping turtle that has been harassing my ducklings.... and I suspect ate one in broad daylight. Been trying to catch him the last few days, but he has been stealing the bait and actually chewing on the metal leader that I was using to attach a hook and bait. Hooked him quite by accident ( was fishing for more bait ) I reeled him in close to shore and shot him with my .22 rifle. I was planning to relocate him but was afraid he would get off the line... was only using a 6# line... It had a HUGE mouth probably could open at least 3" The ducks have been afraid to go into the water... they will go in a shallow area near the edge of the pond, but spook easily and run out. I put the ducks in their duck house at night, Hopefully safe from Coyote, Fox and Racoons that I know are in the area.
