Innocent (or not) bystander

There was no change in the trap this morning, so I left it set up during the day. But it turns out there are more than just raccoons and skunks in the neighborhood. This evening we found a dead squirrel that had trapped itself and died from the heat during the day. Still a varmint, so no big loss, but I should probably think about disarming it during the day so I don't catch someones stay poodle or something. As it is, the count now stands at 3 skunks, 5 raccoons, and 1 squirrel. And now the trap is set for the night; there are fresh coon tracks in the garden...
