My sister had one in her garden, it was blatant enough to eat from the
chicken feeder during the day so the plan was:
Connect a long cable from a switch in the house to a metal plate
underneath the feeder and the live to the feeder itself... (of course
insulated from one another) Plan was to throw the switch when Ronald
was on the plate, with his front feet on the feeder.
After a little time, he came... wait... wait... NOW!
What did we learn? Rats are good insulators!!! just ate his fill and
went away again!!!

If you have a US air force base in the vicinity it might be worth an
anonymous phone call to say that you've just seen bin laden go under
your shed. But it's probably best to make that call about 50 miles
from home as the ordnance from a B52 could cause a new feature in your
back garden which you will need to climb down into.
Alternatively, tell them that there are some UK soldiers practicing in
your back garden. The US warthogs will be along shortly for a bit of
Sending email to my published email address isn't
guaranteed to reach me.
Interesting isn't it that only Americans are allowed to use the "I was
only obeying orders defence", and the only (???) ones expected to fly
doped up to the eyeballs on speed or whatever.
Throughout my life there have been many references to my - ahem - activities
with men other than my husband.
I wouldn't mind if I'd had the fun :-)
References, talk, gossip, hearsay ... not worth listening to.
<sigh - it might have been nice>
