Armadillo Invasion

Courtesy of Yahoo

I've never had problems with Armadillos before.  The only ones I can remember encountering had already met their demise on the road.

A couple of weeks ago I noticed something had been digging in my neighbors yard.  The grass was pulled up and there were large holes all around.  I figured some kind of animal had been digging.  After researching and putting it out on our homeowners facebook page I found out the digging culprits were armadillos.

They started attacking our yard.  They dug under our backyard fence.

I put my rubber chicken to guard their new entrance.  It lasted one night.

Alas, pushed to the side.

Lots of holes in the yard.

The front flower bed is a major crime scene.
My poor kitty.

We treated for grubs because that's what armadillos like to eat.  My neighbor threw out mothballs.  One or the other worked because my neighbor found a dead armadillo in his yard and I am assuming it may have ingested mothballs or over ate grub granules.  We have been "hole free" for a couple of days now.

I've been trying to finish this blog for a few days.  All of a sudden I can't upload pictures.  I'm quite tired of fooling with it.  So this is the end. 

PS if you have a clue as to why I'm getting "Upload Failed Server Returned Invalid Response".  Let me know.
