What eats millet?

WEnt out to the coop this morning to check on the keets. Daughter had a new bag of millet on table by the coop. It was tied good, and weighed 11 lbs. something in the night grabbed it and dragged it across a driveway, up a grade and left it about 25 feet away from the coop. It was leaving a trail of grain all the way. Don't think foxes like millet, maybe coons do, or posseums, could that be the little robbers?

I would suspect coons first, but 11 lbs is awful heavy for a coon. Whatever it was it must have decided it didn't like the taste after all and left it behind. So it could have been anything really. A dog maybe, thought it was trash or something, found out it was rabbit food and ditched it?

Well, Cindi, whatever it was, hope it likes dog food, cause that is what is going in the trap tonight. Had way too much trouble the last time we raised chickens and ducks. Going to head it off this time. The ground is so rocky there, couldn't see a footprint. Got my truck running again, oil sending unit was shot. Nice to have something cheap to fix once in awhile, right?
Bet the birds are thick at the barn with a trail of seed 25 feet long out there
