There is a new addition to my GEORGIA GARDENS in the form of a cute critter. Yes, I do think this bumpy, leprosy disease carrying Armadillo is cute. I believe all animals are cute and do not wish them any harm. This one seems to be living in our front one acre of woods under an overturned tree, I talked about a long time ago.

Whom would have thought that 5 years later, this tree would still be hanging on? Not me nor would I have thought that Armadillos would be in Georgia but they are and also in Tennessee. I have seen them there as well. These little critters are slowly making their way North. Click HERE to learn more about Armadillos.
And this Armadillo has called this hollow spot home. It was all fine and dandy until this past week. The cute little Armored Rat is now crossing the asphalt driveway and coming onto my lawn! This Opossum on the Half Shell is digging holes all over the lawn looking for food! If it would only attack Fire Ant Hills, I would welcome this critter to my gardens but it enjoys things found throughout a garden to include some plants! I know it is only time before he/she gets into the flower beds and gardens. Sigh...
Now my question, how does one have this creature move elsewhere like say in the 15 acres behind our gardens or the 18 acres across the street from my gardens? How does one kindly trap an Armadillo for transportation elsewhere?
I fear if this is a female, she may add to the problem in time. Yikes!!! The Saint and I would like to relocate this happy critter. HELP, ARMADILLOS ARE ON THE LOOSE, In the Garden...
