The Armadillo Wars, Part Ia

Yesterday afternoon I put my how-to-catch an armadillo research to use. I retrieved the live trap from the garage, saved fruit skins, and dug a dozen grubs. Positioning the trap by the most likely spot for the armadillo to come in (the space between the gate and the fence), I "funneled" him to it with two fairly stout branches we'd cut a week before. I put the fruit/grub cocktail in the trap and left it for him.

A no-show. No armadillo. No flower beds dug up either, so he just didn't come.

The nerve!

Undaunted, I await him tonight.
