Something has been trying to dig under the chicken house door. I think it was successful and got some eggs once or else just frightened the chickens enough there were no eggs for days. Anyway, this has been going on for a week. Every night I add more protection in the form of new boards, a few rocks, then bricks set in firmly which it dug to the side of. Then more rocks and a half brick there which stopped it for that night. Then it started working on the side of the fence to enter the edge of the pen door which I also shut every night ever since a chicken massacre 4 years ago. So, I tighten that down and added another board. Then a couple nights ago, I set up a game camera that takes a picture when the motion detector senses something moving in front of it. Actually it takes a succession of three pictures. I got pictures of humans, and three blanks and me setting the camera up. Then last night or rather 4 AM(camera is not set on correct time), it came and this time I got this mystic picture. I called the Fish and Wildlife to ask if I could email the picture for them to guess what it was, and so I did. They let me know for sure what it was and I guess I will agree. Can you tell what it is? It is the thing in the lower right hand corner. I will give you a BIG clue. It is not a wombat.
