A couple of my chickens have died, I think a cat of something is reaching in there coop? We just put some finer wiring around the bottom half of the coop. Any thoughts??

That's typical behavior of a raccoon. Reaching through gaps to get at your chickens..... they're pretty nasty. You may be able to trap it

I have been chasing a **** for 2 weeks. He is a big boar, that only shows up when I'm not on guard. He is trap savy and dens just outside of town. I purchased a dog proof trap which I hoping to employ. On top of that I have fiddled with my cage trap so the trigger peddle can also be triggered by tugging on the cob of corn for bait.
I normally wouldn't go to that extent, but these ***** will eat your chickens through a crack, as I found on had been eaten in half and pulled through a 2" gap I overlooked by the door.
