For starters, all of my birds are fine. Shep slept in the backyard last night. I had reset the trap with more cooked chicken and in the same place as the previous night. I went out to check the girls and trap. Ummmmm.....something got the bait through the wire from the back of the trap! My camouflage of trees branches were removed and there is a lot of digging on the ground behind the trap. A couple of dig spots on the side. The size of the dig marks tells me it was certainly another coon and not Shep. That and the chicken meat had been centered and at a distance from the walls. Something with nimble fingers. A little eat and run action. I hate to think that Shep just laid there on the back deck while all that digging was going on, too. Resetting the trap again tonight. Any ideas on how to prevent the little sob from stealing the bait? Apparently, they have a weakness for my cooked chicken!
