Coon relocation!

Last Saturday evening, I set the box trap in my garden. I suspected that there was at least one more raccoon coming around looking for food a.k.a. chickens. I used an apple as bait. Sunday morning, I was greeted by a fat and unhappy coon. We were lucky to have a cardboard box that we could slip over the trap. We hauled it to a nearby river bridge and let it go under the bridge.
It took off and never looked back. On the way to school on Monday, I saw a dead coon on the side of the highway at the bridge. I sure hope it wasn't our coon! That would be rotten luck for it!
Ya'll Come Back!


  1. an apple huh? I have been trying to figure out how to trap one of those pesky critters myself without trapping my 10 cats. That is a great idea. Cats don't like apples. Now that pesky coon can go to a new home farther in the country.

  2. Sounds like it was easier for y'all to get rid of that one than what Joy went through last year.

  3. I think I have one climbing my fence at night and digging for grubs in my flower beds. Poor peeps must of been so scared seeing a racoon hanging around the hen house. Glad you caught him! Hugs, Loretta

  4. Ugh.... it would be better for the peeps if that was the coon in the road! Glad you sent that one packing!

  5. Glad the Peeps are safe (for now).

  6. Oh, poor raccoon! Hope it wasn't the same one.


Howdy, Thanks for dropping in. I love to hear from you!
