My husband and son saw a pair of muskrats in the creek in the woods behind our house. This made me nervous, as we have a pond. My husband didn't think it was anything to worry about, until a week later. I awoke one morning to find a dead muskrat on our front porch, compliments of our German Shepherd. My dog can only access a corner of our pond, closest to our house- so I know the muskrat had to be close and in the pond. How in the world do I get rid of these little beasts? I don't know where to set up traps, my pond is an acre, and the creek bottom surrounds 2/3 of it! Any ideas or tips, please?
