Right we are being over run by marmots and raccoons. The marmots have made the back porch their home and the raccoons are hanging out in the trees. If either of them begins climbing like this they will be no more.
We didn’t interrupt the elk who ate everything in the yard in sight. We are trying to be reasonable with the other critters, but damage to the roof and coming in through the chimney are simply things we cannot tolerate.
The live traps are set and we will relocate them one time. If they return we will make leather items. We try to live and let live as long as we can.
