how many small drops of mercury would it take to medicate a big raccoon that is stealing eggs and ripping chickens guts out> i figure on putting the quicksilver right in the egg so he injests it ...

Lead poisoning works better than mercury poisoning. I use a .22 caliber to deliver it.

My husband and I found out that if you will wait until about a half-hour after dark, you can take a flashlight and a gun to the chicken house and catch a possum or racoon either one in action, if they are making habitual raids on a chicken house. One time we shot 9 possums in a 2-week period. They get such a taste for chicken that they can barely wait for the cover of darkness to return for more. The light won't scare them, just don't talk as you walk to the henhouse. They will run from the sound of voices. I hope this helps, it sure worked for us.

the coons are so fat , they dont fit in my have a heart trap.. snap traps work but they steal the bait from the trap and then i run the risk of my early birds getting caught in it.. i am not that good of a shot with my 9 mil taurus.
