Default Mayhem & destruction in the night

Muffin & I planted two short rows of sweet corn this spring just to have a few ears of corn to eat & make corn relish. Some of it didn't come up. Too wet & cold I suppose. What did come up was looking pretty good till a few nights ago when a coon got in it & tore several stalks down & messed up the ears. I set a cage trap & caught a big coon. I "relocated" it but didn't set the trap back. I thought that would be the end of it. WRONG!!!!! Night before last more varmints tore down around 25-35% of the corn. $#@^%$#ELL&%# I suspected a sow & kittens did it. Happy Friday 13th. I set 4 cage traps & this morning I had two big coons but they tore down more corn before they got in the traps. I "relocated" them too. The deer & turkey are here almost every day & NEVER destroy anything. Granny & the hen both get in the garden but never bother anything more than a few bean leaves which I'm glad to get rid of. Muffin & I pulled the beans up & canned them this week. Looking like we can forget the corn. .Paul H
