    In Ct They sell hava heart traps at the hardware stores. Its a catch 22 of sorts. You are not supposed to kill nuisance animals out of season and in season only with a liscence. Some states allow it in defense of livestock though. There is a specific fox season in CT..Theres an open season on coyotes and woodchucks have a very long season. The reason I say its a catch 22 is you really arent supposed to relocate animals in CT.. releasing animals from one area to another is a no-no. But Thats the whole point of havaheart type trap. Most people that use them are doing so to release them somewhere else. I knew a guy near me that used one all the time for skunks! al

    I honestly don't know. I think that it may be illegal to kill them but I don't thing it's illegal to trap them in a live trap. I will find out. I know who to ask.

    I know it's not good to catch and release a wild animal to a different place. Here they have their territory. If dump them somewhere else they are totally lost and alone in a strang place with other animals they are not familiar with. But what else can I do? I will find out what is legal and abide by the law. The only time I break a law is when I think that the rule it totally stupid.

    Liz, I did a little reading on relocation of nuisance animals and sounds like relocation generally results of the death of the animal or at least in Fla that seemed truth. Perhaps the better solution is to reinforce the chicken coops.

    Pat, my chickens are free range. All my animals are, even my horse. Everyone gets along and nobody kills anyone, That's my law with my domestic animals. They abide by my law.

    I have only one dog who will chase critters off. He's the dog in my avatar. I call him Big Head. He's 10 years old but he took off like a bullet the other day after something I didn't see behind the chicken house. He likes being outside during the day and inside at night. He's in no way a killer but if he's a good runner-offer that will work well enough.

    I can't loose chicken one after one until they are all bone. I'm the head ***** here. I make the rules.

    No. They go to their horse when the sun goes down and I lock them in for the night. We have possums. At sunrise I let them out to scratch around and eat what ever they find tasty.

    At one time i had a federal endangered permit. I had pheasant,ducks,quail & ***. birds. The damage wild amimals had on them made me sick. I used gal. after welding & turkey wire. No one from the govt. cared. They just want to make laws & feel powerful. My last silkie was taken by a red tail hawk who i diden't blame. I had a vist from nys envioral off. & i had to tell him what a wood duck was that was out of color. I will protect my pets from man or beast. Now we have mange fox again. What next?
