    Caught this Ringtail a few weeks ago. It took about a week of hair-triggering the traps to find out what kept taking the bait.
    Sneaky little guys.
    I don't know if he would kill a chicken though.

    Oh for cute! It would be interesting to know if they eat chickens (although I don't think they'd be much of a threat here in MN)

    What area of Texas are you in? I have heard a few people say that those are moving into OK, but I've never in my life seen one (and I've spent a LOT of time in the country).
