The Live Trap

Overview of our chicken coop and pasture. The trap is placed at the bottom of the fence, near the woods.

So we finally caught something in the trap. Trouble is…it’s not what we were hoping for.

We borrowed a live trap from a friend at my husband’s work. The friend suggested we bait the trap with cat food since he’s had success catching raccoons with that. So we decided to give it a go.

Within three days, my husband spotted something sizeable in the live trap. He went out to check, hopeful to find the predator that attacked our chickens. What he found was something quite different.

Lounging in the trap was our neighbor’s black cat named Precious. We didn’t catch a coon. We caught a cat. It’s no surprise really since we used cat food. Luckily it was a live trap because had it been otherwise, it would have cost Precious all nine lives.
