Hi! I found this site when I was looking for solutions to what to do with a raccoon. We have nine hens, mostly Silkies, a Auracana, Orpinton, Frizzle, and a Sexlink. Now it hasn't done anything to my run and I have chicken wire covering every nook and cranny, including the top, since we lost a silkie to a bird of prey two weeks ago. I don't want to lose any more, and I caught the little stinker actually EATING the head off my pond fish, and it looks like he got one other fish as well last night. After I scared him from the pond, I was worried sick about him coming back for the fish or worse yet our girls. I stayed up until dawn and found him right on my back patio about 25 feet from the coop. He didn't see me as his back was to the window so I banged real hard on the glass doors, and he high tailed it out of there. I don't think I did much to really scare him off permanently, so I was wondering if anyone had suggestions to getting rid of him. Do the ultrasonic devices work to scare them off? If I trap him, where do I get a trap and what do I do with him? I really hate the idea of having to take it in my car. (they make me nervous) Thanks in advance for any advice!
