    Just as I thought. The bud released the critter to a new location. I was hoping it was in the trap long enough to have laid eggs. I just loves me some armadillo eggs!

    Not good. Dillers need killed.
    Buddy trapped a bunch of squirrels in town last year thinking he was going to get rid of them. He released 10 into a city park in a freedom squirrel movement.
    The city park department found about it, and he got a nice fine for transferring wildlife without a permit. Kill em!

    I can't tell you how many of those things we shot with our bows as kids, dozens and dozens. Germex wasn't invented yet, we didn't carry soap and water or rubber gloves with us. We'd just yank out our arrows and go look for more, catching leprosy never was a worry, making sure we caught up to the armadillo running off with our arrows was lol.

    Hmmm, this sounds like some more of that "no good deed goes unpunished" crap. Do these burrowing critters dislike vibration like gophers and moles, or are they not bothered by it? I was thinking of trying some of those gopher stakes. He has a gopher problem as well, so was hoping maybe I could kill two stones with one bird. Thoughts?

    I don't think vibration has any effect on dillers.
    Those gopher vibrators just move them to a different part of the yard or the neighbors and they just come back.
    Trapping is the only way to control them. I've tried a half dozen different designs finally settling on the gophinator as the best. Over the years I've removed dozens of them from our yard. Follow the instructions in the link and you can't miss.

    What did you use for bait in the live trap? I use the Gopher Hawk trap for moles and gophers.

    I have eaten 4 of them so far.. used to chase them down and catch them.
    Friends daughter and her girl friend would chase them down and tackle them.. no teeth in their mouth.
    She made a pet out of one.
    They are very tasty.
    I get one during bow season if the deer are scarce and cook it up in camp.
    You guys need to man up.... when the SHTF I do not want to be the only one left running with the cockroaches.

    My guts are Y2K compliant.

    If they do have leprosy it will be noticed as dry skin at the extremities like the tip of the nose tip of the tail or tips of the ears.
    looks like eczema from what I hear.

    Leprosy and parvo and other bad stuff is in the soil.
    You are more likely to get bad stuff by getting dirt on your meat when cleaning the deer or other critter in the woods.
