Who's been munching on my cotton??

I went out to the back yard, and collected a goodly amount of cotton tonight. I thought that the cotton on the ground had just fallen from a boll that was too high - there are quite a few like that this year.

Long Shot

Except - the seeds were showing. And they had teeth marks.

And there was slobber around the seeds. Which means the slobber was fresh. Not a nocturnal varmint. And not enough slobber to indicate a canine culprit.

Do mice or rats slobber?

First the CSI, then the hit man.

You know, there was this Humane Mouse Trap that I posted to Sheep Thrills... (amid much hilarity because I typo'd Human Mouse Trap.)

'cept I couldn't bait a trap like that with anything that either Big White Dog might want to eat. I can't use a trap with anything that might hurt the BWDs either.

hmmm. What would a cottonseed-chomping-varmit-crimefighting superhero do?

I'll let you know when I figure it out. I got a trip to get ready for.
