As anyone had any issues with raccoons getting in the water troughs? Swapping out the water today and noticed coon tracks around them. Let me know if there is anything I can do to keep them away. Thanks

I made the mistake of leaveing one of my feed barrels open caught 1 coon then 2 at once. Then you wouldn't be live without seeing this.

Please find a wildlife rehabilitator in your area (would be happy to help you find someone), they can help you humanely relocate.

Sorry, I hit the "like" button. I can imagine you're not happy about the coons, but the pic. is hilarious. I feel with you though, I had coons and possums already in the feed bags and in my mudroom eating the cat food. Never ending supply of these critters here at my place. We don't relocate any. If we see them, it's war. Last week 2 hens killed by possums, well 2 nights in a row the hunt was on at 1 a.m.

They are a nussance. i am also not into moving a problem somewhere else. The nest predators are over populated and a problem.
