Bandits in Idaho

Tonight we set a trap for the raccoons we saw yesterday eating our cat food. As you can tell from the pictures below, Jake was in heaven. I went out and checked the trap after a game (11:30 p.m.) and we had caught 2 coons in the cage. When I looked down there was a third in the cat house. He didn't run away. Jake immediately went for his gun and called our neighbor Brad to come shooting with him. (It's never too late for that). When we checked the trap we saw one baby coon and a huge one run away. We have set the traps again tonight to see what is in them in the morning. I guess we just pray that there won't be skunks. I laugh because only in Idaho can you do this in your yard at midnight AND have your neighbors come over to join in the fun.
