Just got back from having our beloved rooster put out of his misery. He was attacked by a fishercat while freeranging, and it was one of the most upsetting things I've seen, ever. Ripped his end open, took the skin off his side, and left him still alive, but barely. He was the only one we let ourselves get really attached to, and have had him longer than anyone else in our flock. He was so severely injured, I don't think either DH or I will be able to get that image out of our heads for some time. How does one catch a fishercat? The best way to kill one without a gun? I won't use his body as bait, as he was a dear pet, and I dont have a gun or good aim.
