I've had a coon problem recently. He's taken up to breaking through everything I've set up to keep him out. Just short of putting chicken wire around every cage, I think I just need to get rid of him. My dad and I reinforced my cages, but I don't know what else to do. He's been reaching his hands through the cages now and just killed one of my bantam barred rocks that I was planning on breeding. I have a have a hart trap. How can I bait this? I figure I can get my friend to let me borrow his gun to take care of it if I catch it, but what is the best way to set it up? Is there anything else I can do? I haven't had a problem during the seven years I've had birds and all of a sudden I feel like I keep waking up to dead birds no matter what I do. I want to pull out my hair! Grrrr!
