Cat food Bandit got a pass today and got released at the Mt Vernon water reservoir. Mainly because i had to go up there and pick up my chain saw and because he didn't tear up my cage.

I knew I had him when I rounded the curve 250 yards away and Otis the Cat was there to tell me HE had caught the Coon last night. Meow, Meow, Meow, Meow, talk, talk, talk. I got him...

What is it that Doug Kruske calls them??? Porch Monkeys? or is that the other kind>>>



Here's a photo of Otis the Kat. Johnny Cash had a song called "Mean Eyed Cat." this describes him to a T, but he has tamed down a lot from what he was.

Eyes

That is sure a "Mean Eyed Cat". The raccoon, on the other hand, looks like he's saying "I'm sorry, man. I promise it will never happen again".

I tried taking trapped coons five miles down the road and dumping them, but they'd beat me home.

Now I just pick up the trap, put it in the truck and take it down the road, then out in the boonies I stick the muzzle of a .22 thru the cage and shoot the danged things. So far, I'm up to about 20. Same bait, cat food. I'm feeding about eight cats, and a few coons makes that untenable. I popped one this morning, in fact.

Cat looks like it is PO'd big time. Another reason I don't have cats around the house. :p

This very conversation came up the other day with Corey, Mike, Doug & Zac.

Trash Panda was the name used. Corey devirginized a new Remington 870 on the Trash Panda he found trying to escape a trap next to his chicken coop. Word is the coon will never attempt to escape again & is unlikely to steal any more chicken eggs.

There’s an endless supply

As long as there is a food source, they just keep on coming. Seems that I only get juveniles and small females in the cage traps and have to rely on the leg traps to get the bigguns.

Speaking of trash-eating varmints......Have you seen any bears down there on your place?

Carl, I have not seen any Bear here, but several other people have. I am not in the woods as much anymore, but I am surprised that I have not seen one yet.

LDS, The Bouncer and Otis Have met....did not go well as Bouncer absolutely Hates other Tomcats. Otis's house is across the creek and about a half mile away as the crow flies, but I have never seen him over here. I think the Creek stops him.

Glen, 5 miles is not near enough. When I do release one alive its 15 miles away.

I just caught one leaving the shed where I feed the cats, I knew there was one around because the cats never clean up all their food and tip over the feed pans.
He won't be coming back! We had a talk and I'm sure he got my message! :rolleyes: 20gauge in the light of my flashlite message. :D
GOD BLESS. Dean

Yeah, Ami and I have a "love/hate" kind of opinion RE the 'trash bandits".

They're cute, but we have a German Shepard that patrols the yard, and absolutely WILL NOT back off, once he gets his nose clawed by "whatever"!

They gotta keep their distance - respect Thor's territory or fact the consequences...
