This was a great Father's Day... made all the more sweet by putting the hurt on that monster mole!
After more than a dozen lucky escapes, and at least that many big mole-hills, we got him. Zero-to-hero, finally!
The only disappointment was that he's just an average size mole.
Judging him by the size of his tunnels and mounds, we figured he was big enough to drag our traps deep underground, and damage the house's foundation, so we were disappointed that his hide isn't big enough to make Mom a Mother's Day coat... but she isn't too sad about it.
The villagers can sleep in peace now that the dragon is slain.
