We had chickens, and we made box traps to capture them and then throw them in the outhouse because they were POWs, until we got caught and had to stop.

@elVato: Skunks are bad about that too, they'll chew the craw out of chickens sucking the blood out of them.

that's what the weasel did to the ducks. really f'd up my one sister.
i was a lot younger so maybe it didn't traumatize me as much.
- or maybe it did.
