They all like their bacon crispy.

This is according to my Haveahart trap directions.

Don't need a Haveahart trap when you Daisy, our Shih Tzu, on the prowl.

I'm in TX, and we have an armadillo problem on the property.

The bad news is there is no bait that draws one into a Havahart.

The good news is their eyesight is so poor, if you place the trap where they run (they are creatures of habit), they will run right into the trap.

I even lassoed one on the back patio last night with 30' of clothesline rope. Their hearing and sniffers are very good, but they're pretty much blind.

And they carry leprosy, so don't go giving 'em the coochy-coo of mercy.

Honestly, you are living your life the right way, my friend. Lassoing armadillos? Badass.

Also band name alert. Sounds like a power-pop band.

Lassoiing an armadillo is about as difficult as shooting a free-throw, because armadillos move almost as fast across hard surfaces as a basketball hoop does ;o)

In the dirt and across grass, though, they can scoot along pretty quick.

We need video Peegoo! LOL!

I woke up to WW3 sounds coming from under the house about 3 am this morning. Two of the largest Opossums I've ever seen were slugging it out under the house. They were crashing into the metal furnace ducts and the sound was crazy loud.

I don't know if it was a romance gone bad, or a territorial dispute.

They entered through a foundation vent that had a hole chewed through.

The foundation vents in this house don't have the tougher modern HD screen. The vents are actually wood buck-outs with wire cloth stapled to the inside.

Anyways I looked outside on the back patio with the flashlight just in time to see one of the culprits exiting the vent to the outside world. It was a little beat up and limping, and kind of shaking it's had like it got it's ass kicked.

Needless to say a little while later I heard a second one trying to exit, but it couldn't because I had already placed a cinder block in front to the vent to keep the first one out. Obviously I didn't know there was two R.O.U.S. down there.

Haveahart is set with cat food.

Fingers crossed. Two to catch. Pictures will follow.

Armadillos have so many streets to cross before they get to my house, most become road kill.

When I was growing up, and we went into the woods hunting, the armadillo was the easiest animal to shoot.

I'm glad this thread wasn't titled "The dreaded opossum problem."

I’ve taken out 8 armadillos, in the last 6 months, 6 with the Henry .22 and 2 with the Jeep. There are plenty more, my neighbor Tim is up to 14.

I’ve only seen one skunk on the property, he lives down in the back. A very passive critter, we ran into each other in the workshop once, I heard chirping behind a small refridgerator, thinking it was a birds nest I moved the fridge to see, and out walks this huge skunk, I didn’t freak out and neither did he, just kind of waddled off and out of the workshop the way he came in.

My buddy Tony’s Blue Heeler, Max, went after it once, the skunk ran into Tony’s tent, the dog followed, the skunk escaped in the turmoil, Tony, tent and Max got sprayed, both were forbidden to enter the house of a few days.

Reading down the thread I was going to say these are all critters that will get a case of lead poisoning when they become pests on my property.

hushnel beat me to it.

My two previous GSDs became victims of skunk spray while in the back yard. I haven't seen a skunk in years now after those two were "terminated".

Renaissance man...we just learned in another thread that he lived in Teddy Roosevelt's cabin. Teddy had already left the building, though.

It was a hunting lodge, not a cabin. Two stories, 26 acres, and waterfront on both sides of a small peninsula. Beautiful place. Fresh oysters in knee-deep water at low tide too.

One down, one to go.

I let this one go about 10 miles from the house.
