Today started better than Monday, because he/she went into the live
trap. This live trap barely works so I never know what the result will
be when I set it! My excellent Hav A Heart trap was run over years ago by the Fish and Game Dept. man who was out here setting up a Bear trap.
Ahhhhhhhh, life in the country! This replacement is persnickety.
And you have to open the gate with your fingers which is reachable by the Critter!
But hooray, one less in close proximity. He/she will get a ride down the country
road, perhaps to Charlie's place ( read about that in this post HERE ) where no one lives, and there are no neighbors nearby either.
I have decided, however, to use the pitchfork for picking up hay from now on!
