Stupid effin' raccoons

It's spring.  They're back. Stupid effin' raccoons.

The one night I was late closing coops, the ONE NIGHT, they made off with two chickens.  There was nothing but a pile of feathers outside the coop. 

 Now, this is what greeted me this morning:

Where they tried to bust through the coop window.

My hand for scale.  I'm actually surprised that it wasn't a bloodbath out there this morning.  After they got bored with the chicken wire they tried to dig UNDER the small coop.

So I went out there today with a roll of 1/4 inch hardware cloth and staple gun and covered both of the windows.  

I found these right above my head  while I was busy stapling and hammering:

So now there's that to deal with.
