I have two ducks. The have a coop and a pen in my backyard. For a whole year we were raccoon free. My ducks like their night swims, so they would sometimes stay out until 10, then we put them in their coop for the night. However, today I opened the backyard light and there it was, a fat raccoon. My poor babies weren’t harmed (thank goodness). I frightened the raccoon away and quickly locked the ducks up safely for the night. What do I do? Sometimes our schedule does not permit us to put the ducks in their coop until after dark. I don’t want to harm the raccoon but I certainly do not want the raccoon to harm my ducks. Any advice?
