So mr raccoon came and visited us last night. He ate all the bait but the trap didn't go off. Then he went and tore open a bag of garbage all over my porch. Lol. Oooo I can't wait to get this sucker

We had a raccoon actually break some of the metal on our trap! So crazy, it was about 10 feet from where we set it and a couple of the metal bars were snapped. Stupid raccoon.

Raccoons are the spawns of satans. Atleast to bird owners. I've trapped and killed and/or released 5 in the last month. It's a never ending fight here. So I just make sure everyone is cooped securely at night. I've got 3 layers of wire on each window.

For sure! I've trapped eleven so far this year in a trap under the window of my chicken stall. None were released! Once a raccoon is released, he will never be trapped again.

We release them a long way away, on a persons property we do not care for. *evil laugh*

My genius neighbor actually leaves out dog food in his driveway for raccoons! LOVE that guy. We now get raccoons in our front yard in the middle of the day, hanging around like they own the place. I have little kids and now chickens! When we built our coop we used hardware cloth and we surrounded the coop...top, bottom and sides. The place is like Fort Knox!
