I hear ya. I've left a bottle of beer out there. I've seen coon
go for beer in the past. The bottle was still out there the next
day. Not even touched. What coon would pass up on such
The news reported that some foxes were re-introduced into
Tampa (across the bay) and they were reporting that the foxes
were eating people's cats and dogs and if a fox was seen, to
report it to animal control.
We've been getting some good rain everyday so the cayenne
pepper washed off. Used up a whole bottle of that stuff on the
corn plants. I've made a scare-uhh-crow and am hoping that
will work. We've got a couple poodles that bark at any noise
outside... they go nuts and I've never seen a coon out here.
From what I know in the past when I last saw a coon, it was
at a campground and it happened to open up a cooler and
grab a bottle of beer out of the cooler. I was a teenager when
that happened and dem coons are smart. The one that stole
the beer walked around with a degree that stated B.S. which
I assumed meant, "Beer Snatch". ;-)
In the meantime, I'll keep my eyes open for some coons. There
anything that would attract a coon that squirrels wouldn't bother
with ? I'm sure if there are coons around, they'd be smart
enough to walk into the house through the doggy door. And
the cats would probably through a fit if they saw a coon in the
house, as would the poodles.
