Racoons!
« on: June 16, 2014, 03:14:56 pm »
Preface:
Keep in mind I am on near 90 acres of farm. This means there is farm equipment, and besides the equipment  kept here, other equipment is kept here, and folks come and go, and sometimes the barn doors are open until late, allowing critters to do what critters do best. Read: screw stuff up.

So the sprayer and mower for hay have seen much use. Racoons have been coming around, but I never had a safe shot, especially when folks were out in the field.

So I set out a Have-a-Hart live trap.

Two racoons were not happy at all. I was surprised they were getting along in such a confined space...
Also baffled as how both got in the darn trap...

Rem 510 did its job, allowing me to empty trap. BTW these critters were heavy!

Just property duty...
