Making the release pens.

We've got 3 release sites this year and about 30 raccoons to divide up among them. So with a wonderful donation of some old dog kennel panels, and a wonderful donation of time from Rick, we've got 3 release pens in the works!
We had to make tops so Rick managed to put together some other poles that we were able to "sew" chain link to (as you can see Laurie doing here)....all from donated fencing materials, helping keep costs way down!

It's just a matter of securing the chain link to the frame and filling in some gaps to make it all coonie proof now....then we'll un-assemble, drag to the release site, reassemble and fill with coons! Piece of cake! Ha!

On one hand I'm looking forward to booting them all out but on the other I'll be sad to see them go!
