Hi guys, I have kept turtles for about 30 years, and have a problem that I am struggling with. I live in the middle of the city in Orange County California, and have a Racoon that has killed 3 Adult Chinese Box turtles 3 large females, a female North American Wood and a Large Hermanns Female. It killed them all in a couple of days - I now have to go out every evening and put all of the turtles away. I have 2 cages that I have put in cat food, anchovies, chicken and bananas, and I cannot seem to catch the racoon. Can anyone give me advice on how to catch it. It seems that it is just killing for the fun of it. I know its a racoon, because I have seen it twice. I actully chased it onto a neighbors house, but it got away.

Thanks,

Bill
