Trap Tally Today

Over the summer I did a trap tally as we moved "squirrels" to preserve our apple and peach harvests. Last summer we had an abundance of births. Over 12 squirrels counted in the back yard and hundreds of lost pieces of fruit. SO... this summer we decided to very humanely move them. This summer we caught and released, to a wonderful open space, 8 squirrels, 1 huge black bird, 1 raccoon and this morning one of the thousands of grass chompin' crazy rabbits. BY THE WAY, ADD TWO SQUIRRELS for 11/19 & 11/20, THAT MAKES 14 for the summer/autumn! One of my friends just told me I have been catching the same two squirrels over and over, NOT!!!!

NOW, back to writing...
