Anyone have a solution for him other than a shot-gun. Chickens are in a pen.

Cookies and tea party ?? what about one of dukes traps, marshmellows, tuna, something different that might attract him.... Haul him to woods across town and let him go.

Dukes dog proof coon trap. Put a marshmallow in first then I use cheap fish flavored cat food, other people use peanut butter or?

Sounds like a few Buffalo wings would be better bait for this coon.

Coons should never get a pass. Had one as a pet. Nasty, vile creatures. Show up in my yard, get a free ride to the city land fill. Was thinking last night, bet I've sent a hundred pounds of coon carcass to the land fill, just from my back porch.

The raccoon knows where the chickens are and what they taste like. Do everyone a favor and eradicate your pest before he invites friends.
