We lost our last duck last week, and then we lost our meanest Rooster, and we keep losing barn cats. The adults are still alive and reproducing but the kittens disappear as fast as the female can pop em out. I am really surprised they took down the rooster, he was a mean SOB. He used to attack us when we went in the run. I have yet to get the devil thats taking them down, so my question is do I need to get some kind of damage control permit to set traps during the off season? During the season I had my trap rolled twice and they only left a small hunk of dark hair, and a third time I had a turkey feather in it, I think a Tom drug his wing tips across the pan, but who knows.
