Now, when the raccoon came, scaled 6 feet of chainlink fence and killed one of our hens, then it became personal.
If he never came back again, he would still be alive today. I caught him using a live trap, and since it is illegal in Florida to relocate a coon, I had no choice but to shoot him. I took no pleasure in it, and I wish he just would have stayed out in the woods.
But our chicken's protection is my responsibility.
