That Varmint

That varmint we talked about earlier this week?  I wonder if this will end the problem?


I've got it set on the back porch right now.  Hopefully, the cats will learn to stay out of it.  We'll see.

Are you going to take him swimming?

No, Joe, probably going to administer a 40 grain dose of CCI to calm him down. Let's wait till morning and see what happens.

Used to be that certain residents of Lower Third Street would gladly help you dispose of the raccoon, if you gave it to them alive or freshly killed. They really liked it if you dressed it first, but leave one front foot attached for ID purposes.

I think those days are gone, though.

My mechanical engineer friend that loved to tinker once built a homemade version out of scrap lumber and set and baited it near the garbage cans that the coons were raiding. It worked great, but it looked like crap, er, I mean scrap. The garbage men hauled It off with the trash! He built another one but this time he painted the whole thing shiny black and painted "NOT TRASH" on top, and he staked it to make it hard to move. That did the trick.
