I'm not fencing my last property Aquisition. You want to pay to fence over 10 acres though ; c'mon over. Racoons will still enter and exit , as will other critters.Yup, killing every raccoon that goes on the property isn't the answer. Do a better job of protecting whatever you're trying to protect from the raccons and you won't have to kill anything. Bottom line, spend some money to keep the predators out instead of killing creatures that are just looking to survive in this world. This sort of senseless killing of animals is why so many people despise hunters and trappers.
Coyote crosses or climbs a fence in my yard I'll kill it given the chance.
Hate me all you want.
Coyote in range on my other property given the chance will kill also. Period.
Tonight I will close doors on this house despite it being a footprint animals once upon a time could walk on.
I hear coyote after dark (pups and den time of year they're pretty quiet) the "coyote watch" sign goes up on the rear door access to double barrier but coyote defeatable territory I defend.
I don't give a rats butt who don't like dead coyotes. I've no use for them.
And live in a state the federal government "protects" wolves in. Is the federal government protecting coyotes from wolves? Why not?
Is the federal government in it's Isle Royale wolf/moose experiment protecting moose? Why not?
But we musn't intervene with predators .
I disagree. Strongly.
Tell me why people not responsible for how I care for stock should dictate how I defend it from predation? And why shouldn't such be defended.
Go ahead and fence and /or protect the coyote and moose calf in these videos.
Take a wild guess what I will think of hunter and trapper haters should a wolf cross a fence or border of mine while only "looking" at a dog of mine ?
Or how much I'll care about who thinks wolves need protection on my property.
A man posts he has a coon problem he has a coon problem.
They ate not arriving at his sight because the live in a utopia beyond.
Young of the year as well as last year are dispersing. It's a law of nature.
We add ten people to your home but not groceries to feed ten more and guess what? Someone is either going to start scrounging near , or die. Period.
Habitat has a point it can no longer sustain life. And that is long after desired edibles are gone.
When trapping paid , we trapped more.
When prices crashed in the late seventies racoons were only one species that saw populations soar.
Guess what? Local pheasant numbers were decimated! Fox. Coon. Possum. Crunch crunch crunch went pheasant eggs. Then hen pheasants on nests.
But yeah , hunting and trapping should be hated. Nature does just fine without humans involved.
Oh wait....Animals don't live under your homes concrete? Ooops. What should we do about you displacing them? Hate someone else for not welcoming them on thier property?
Not sure your logic of protect what it is you want to protect solves anything.
But plan one at least an acre to fence here to prove your point.
Don't forget , the top needs covered in wire too.
