So 2 nights I heard the most hideous screaming back by my winter bog. I set a trap there because what I assume is a raccoon keeps pooping on my little waterfall stone. At first I was scared the sound was coming right from my pond and they were fishing there again, but then I heard the gnashing of teeth and scrambling. So I ran to the back corner of my yard to see what was up and as best I can tell it was a racoon and skunk fighting as it was pretty intense smell, and the racoon cries (sounds like a baby screaming) was easy to identify.
Next morning I check the trap back there and what do I find. The same dumb adolescent squirrel got himself caught for the 3rd time! Jokes on me I guess cause he’s getting free cat food as I just let him out.
