My neighbour was out to me on Friday saying that they lost 2 ducks and a hen in the last 2/3 weeks. I was sure it was a vixen feeding cubs. I set 7 snares on Friday as I was working the weekend and do be in work at 7 am so had no time to go with the lamp.
After 3 days nothing even disturbed the snares. I found it funny while looking for passes and dens that there were no feathers at all.
I have now been told that 2 more ducks have been taken and again no feathers. I am now starting to wonder is it foxes at all.
Would a mink/stoat/pine martin be able to drag something that heavy?
I am limited to shotgun work as I no longer have my .223.
Any help/suggestions are greatly appreciated
