    it got 2 of my hens last night. My son is outside cutting half inch wire to put on the sides of the cages.

    I swear I should of hit it last week when it ran in front of my car.

    A friend of mine says to have my boys pee around the quail pens...that the smell will deter the racoons...anyone else hear of this?

    The darn thing got 2 more last night...this time it pulled the tray out from underneath....and of course its taking my hens...and it took my only mature hen who is laying..aaarrrggghhhhhh!!!!!!!

    If I owned a gun I would shoot it.

    Does anyone know if the traps at TSC would be strong/big enough for a coon?
