Easy Prey

Last night, I armed, but did not supply both the borrowed little trap and the larger trap a full grown coon easily fits into. Since the fellow working on the garage, who empties the animals out of the live traps onto game refuge ground for me (heaven forfend that I put a loaded and leaking live trap on Audra the Audi's leather seats, even covered with newspapers) was going to be gone today, I decided to just have them look like normal, but instead, the mate to the small coon I caught Monday went right on in and got trapped. His mother kept scolding from out of sight. (She's the one I trapped first, but one or both of the cubs turned her loose, which is NOT supposed to be possible.)
