A Grim Sign of Spring

When I went out to close up the barn this evening, I discovered upset chickens.  At first I dismissed their behavior. But on second look, I discovered that one of my speckled Sussex hens had been murdered.

I suspect that a raccoon is looking for food for babies.  My challenge will be to trap the raccoon before it can kill another chicken.

This is war.

A shot gun or trap may help matters?
