    Sadly, we had our first coon kill yesterday :( We have a scarecrow and motion light and hardware cloth and even traps out, but I knew it was inevitable to happen eventually. We did trap and dispatch the culprit, but of course want to prevent further. My parents recommended a product calld Animal Stopper sold in granular form that they had luck with keeping coons away from their grapes. Has anyone heard of this or used it? We do have kids and a dog that I would need things to be safe around. They free range all day and coop at night. Any thoughts are appreciated!
