    In case anyone hadn't noticed, youtube has been cracking down on what they deem to be offensive videos, and that includes a number of really helpful trapping videos. I have made numerous links to them, including this thread:

    https://www.backyardchickens.com/threads/coons-believe-it.1170361/

    What you can expect is what is found at posts 6 and 7. Gone.....all gone.

    Shame. They were really helpful and informative.

    Can you contact them to see if they will put them back up?

    They are not my videos......they were produced by others....I only link to them. Far easier for me and others to use what someone else spent a lot of time and shared a lot of expertise to produce. But Google/YouTube didn't like it so they are gone and apparently nothing the folks who posted them can do. They are pissed to say the least.

    Shame. Those videos were so helpful.

    That's unfortunate. Youtube/Google is really going off the rails lately. Google wants to cleanse the whole thing to make it all kid-friendly and advertiser-friendly. Now they are going too far, and I suppose soon another platform will rise up to replace Youtube and begin the cycle again. There are videos of ISIS and people dying in horrific accidents, but trapping raccoons? Oh heavens no! :rolleyes:
