22 May

I’m not a fan of raccoons, but I tolerate them in the pasture.  That’s where they belong.  I hate them in the barnyard.

Embden goose on nest

Gabby was pulled from her nest and killed.  She was the oldest animal on the farm and one of my original geese.

    Oh Teresa, I’m so sorry!! Raccoons may be cute, but they can be very vicious. We used to have them right here in our yard, here in town when we first moved here 21 years ago.

    I wondered how she died. Thought it was old age or something. Sorry. I don’t like raccoons at all. Sorry I missed the farmers mkt. I even had it on my calendar but was still mowing & still not done. Hoping you did well!

    Teresa, I feel for you. I went out last night and found the “new” cochin bantam rooster missing. I only found a feather. So far, all the hens are still there… but… ARGGHHHH. Sorry for your loss of Gabby.

      Thanks, Eileen. I debated on sharing my sad news, but she was such a beautiful girl, I just had to.

    How SAD! And you are certain it was a racoon and not a coyote or fox? Really sad.

    Part of nature….but still, this is such a tragedy!!! How sad.

    That raccoon was the culprit. Let’s put him on trial!!!!!! “Book ‘im Dano!!!”
