    Kathy in WV Just runnin' the ridges...

    In the old garage that doesn't have any doors. My 14 yr old stepped out there to do something and startled it I'm guessing, because it ran out the other side of the garage. THAT seriously has me worried. We're talking 25 feet from the house! Just glad it didn't feel cornered... I knew there was one or more around here cause I saw tracks over a month ago on one of our walks. One of the many reasons I have to carry when we leave the yard. Looks like now I need to carry all the time. I need to figure out whats **legal** to do....... It got 2 of my chickens sometime yesterday so it is already a nuisance. I don't like it being near the house, got kids running in and out all day long plus dogs and cats, etc... My son said it was pretty good size as it streaked by him. Dang it's always something! What would you do?

    With the kids, dogs and cats, a trap probably isn't such a good idea. You might ask around at local sporting goods stores and see if you can locate someone who call and hunt varmits. He or she could probably assess the situation, set up, call it in and kill it.
