Of Monster Moles

This year's battle with moles has escalated this week - out of the pasture has emerged a 'Terminator' mole... a mole of such gargantuan proportions that we've deployed all available traps in his pursuit.

And in return, he has laughed at us, marching across the lawn leaving 8 large mounds in his path.

These aren'te ordinary mounds, either. These are "fill the bucket and bury your trap" mounds. Can you see the trap (unsprung) inside this pile?

His tunnels are big enough for a cat to turn around in.

This is no ordinary mole... and when we get him we're mounting him on the wall.
