Further to my posting "Unwanted visitors" spotted this cheeky young rat surveying the area under the feeders this afternoon.
Looks cute . . . . but although possibly doing a PR pose on behalf of it's family, still unwelcome.

Traps set, bait box nearby, but obviously not working! Hopefully now we have returned the dogs we were baby-sitting, the neighbours cat will be back on patrol!

Canon 600D, 40D, 350D + 50mm 1.8, Sigma 18-200is, 70-200 2.8DG and 70-300. Still have A1 and 300 EOS and must get out my Rollei TLR sometime

I seen rats the size of cats when I was young. Perfect timing on this photo.

It's a shame that they are so cute!


Hope you are not using deadly bait. If a rodent eats the bait, then someones pet eats the sick rodent, the pet will probably die as well. We have lost a dog and a cat because our neighbors put out Rat or Mouse poison. I saw my German Shepherd playing with a dead rodent on our lawn, and a few days later he passed away after a visit to the animal hospital.

A friend of mine's mother lived on a farm with a rat problem-she couldn't bear to see any animal suffer so she fed the rats and caged her cats when she knew the rats were around. Ironically, she begged me to shoot a hawk that had eaten one of her kittens(I absolutely refused.)

My friend went into the house when she wasn't home with a .22 pistol and those mini shotshells. He offered the rats to me to feed my snakes and I turned him down due to parasite and lead hazards. However, I was shocked, those rats were 3-4 pounds each. The biggest were a full pound bigger than anything I could buy from sellers raising rats specifically for snake food. Rats can get huge.

Tunnel traps and food station set, about to fit a new "o" ring to my 50yr old .22 BSA Metior (the only one my sons havent "borrowed").
