Re: Gardening and depression

We don't have armadillos here (tho global warming may change that...),
but I was curious about natural predators, so did a web search and found
alligators (not exactly a nice addition to the garden!), cougars/pumas
(ditto), dogs, coyotes, and highway traffic.  And the aforementioned
shotguns and traps, which I include as 'natural predation' because
armadillos are apparently edible by humans.  "if properly prepared".

Most interesting trap is a pipe slightly smaller in diameter than the
armadillo, which is pounded into the exit/entry to the armadillo's
sleeping quarters - critter tries to leave its den and gets stuck.

Also ran across reference to the Screaming Hairy Armadillo, which sounds
like a joke, but apparently is a real creature!
