As many of you know, raising chickens for eggs isn't cheap, and loosing them to predicators is part of the game - but a expensive part. In the past, I've lost hens to just about every kind of predator , but with constant trapping I've been able to keep it "under control". For the last three days, I've had something get in the hen house at night and kill a hen = just eating the neck and butt, and not leaving the body behind. So, last night I put up the game camera facing into the door, and as expected, a LARGE Possum made its appearance. My dad always told me that a possum could do as much damage as a coon, fox or skunk, but I didn't heed his warning - thinking that the good that they do, outweighs what damage they do. Wrong. War has began - traps will be out in force tonight. I plan on torture before death.
