    Last night my girlfriend comes and gets me and tells me that the dogs are barking can I go and check on the girls. Well good thing that I did,
    we live in Miami and on a canal, but I haven't seen a raccoon in quite a long time. Every since I got my little mutt no cats, and no raccoons.
    Well i go out and check on the chickens and the little goose angelina, good thing that I still put her in the run every night. they were 2 fat raccoons on top of the shed they ran up there when the dog heard them.
    they might have been just crusing down the canal bank and the dogs surprised them. but you never know. you can bet that angelina and the chicks will be in the coop/run locked up.

    never let your guard down.....

    Get a couple of traps and get rid of them. They will be back. We are setting traps for raccoons and possums.

    well mine is just going to do. She is just a little fat mutt.

    However, tonight she managed to sneak a piece of fried chicken off the cooling plate while our backs were turned.

    NOT GOOD. She gave it up.
