And this makes 4!
Location: North side of the compost at around 1700 hours.
Again, getting ready to eat dinner...I guess the rats had the same idea. I saw the dark furry thing running back and forth to stock up on the rest of the cherry tomatoes that had been left out. Bad idea, rat. Don't you know that nearly your entire family has been picked off from doing this..apparently their absence doesn't mean much to you. I pumped the gun, snuck out the front and around the corner. Threw out a nice fat red rotten tomato to lure my pray on over and I waited...again. Sure enough, a few minutes later it casually walked out and made it's way over to my trap. I didn't know if it was going to hang around and I didn't want to sit outside much longer. I was getting hungry and I didn't want my dinner to overcook. So I shot and hit it right in the head as you can see in the picture below. I guess I'm good at hitting my targets in the neck and head, since that's where I've gotten every single one of those nasty little [and some not so little] things. This one was a fighter. It jumped up in the air and wiggled and squirmed all over the place. I was trying to shoot it again to put it out but it wasn't giving up so easy. It took me about 3 more shots to finally hit it and then he was gone. Tear...of gladness! If I'm not mistaken, I believe there is still one more. Hopefully not, but I'm not giving the Templeton's the benefit of the doubt.
The eyes started to go grey right away. It was pretty gross to say the least.
P.S. I sware I'm not white trash...just trying to protect my property. Is that so bad???
