Week 5 - I'm trapped, and I can't get out!

Last week I told you that we had a fox problem here at Pieceful Harbor.  John and our neighbor put their heads together and decided that the only way to handle the one or more foxes was to trap them and dispatch them.  They placed a trap out near our tree line in the north field the other day and primed it with raw chicken.  They did NOT, however, actually set the trap.  The idea was to get the creature used to getting food from the inside of the trap without fear of it trapping it...once it had taken the bait a couple of times, they really set the trap.  

 And the next night, this is what they saw ...yes, folks, that's a possum.
Needless to say, they let him go...he's not the creature that is killing out chickens. so he got a hall pass! As John said, "I've go no war with you!".

Things have been pretty quiet here on the farm...the above is the most exciting thing to happen this week. 

Thanks for stopping by.
