Flattop Evades Capture



This isn't Flattop, the raccoon that is hanging out at Go Postal's but I thought it was funny. This is probably what Banjo see's if he tries to get to his food bowl after dark. I have tried to give Flattop a chance at re-location, and twice he has evaded the trap. Last night he once again successfuly set off a large Haveaheart trap and stole the food. Tonight Go Postal is going to try to tie it down. He is not welcome, he has taken over Banjo's home (the well house) by learning to use the cat door and is getting his water bowl all dirty by washing his paws in the water. Flattop for your own good....get into the trap. Then you can take a short ride in the back of the truck down to the Yadkin river where you can start a new life. Otherwise...I think Go Postal is going to Go Postal on you. (By the way Flattop is the name of the Merlefest mascot)

Racoons are too smart for their own good. I hope he sees the sense in your plea and accepts his new home down by the river!

I wonder if Flattop has a laptop? If not, he may not read this post...
