So, have the creatures been caught?

And where will they be brought to, once they are? To the forest behind the house .... so they can easily find their way back?
(you might want to remove that chocolate, once they're out).


Not yet. Maybe the Coop chocolate was too cheap!

That being said, I’m very surprised black chocolate has to be used, as theobromine is toxic for most animals. A tablet of black chocolate can kill a small dog for instance.

Re: Feeding chocolate to the weasels!

Maybe that is the idea...


"You are not allowed to kill them. That is against the law. But should they choose to commit suicide... "


(Gallic (Swiss?) shrug.)

Re: Feeding chocolate to the weasels!

We have the little effers* in our attic in France.


They have a horrible habit of marking their territory by the entrances and exits of YOUR territory, just so you know they are there.


That has meant a pile of poo just inside the attic door, outside the kitchen door, and outside the door to the terrace.


You can tell its them: the s*poo*r is dark (black), quite long and dry, and often contains eggshells and feathers. (Because they eat eggs and chicks).


If you corner them, they have lots of teeth and claws, can spray you like a skunk, and fight viciously. My advice: don't.


I tried many things. Modern mothballs don't work, you need the real Napthalene ones, which have been banned in the EU for a few years. Lights, putting the radio on. Nah - I think they thought it was a disco, and just bred more. Latest thing is I bought a bottle of Anti-Marder spray in Migros Garten, which sort of seems to have done the trick.


Good luck


Regards




Ian

Läderach chocololate? Then end with bloody ultra right wing weasels? That's all I need on top of my psycho cat!

Re: Feeding chocolate to the weasels!

Not only I have not caught them, but they've eaten the chocolate and shat on my front window seal! Merde!

They are probably Vaudoise and already knew the trick.
