I'm beginning to root for the diller
That's not quite fair. The Armadillo has natural talent he is using against a fellow TFF member. Where is your unity and brotherly love for the downtrodden and abused folk in this world. Your Brother Sharps is suffering at the hands of a sneaky & wiley master animal criminal intent on ruining Sharps' yard and apparently his marriage as well. Mrs. Sharps has had a knee go out on her during the horrid crisis and she is suffering because her Man is concentrating on a critter and not the wife of his youth.

You need to get on yore knees right now and pray for your brother, that The Almighty will give him wisdom and the strength to carry out this Crucible set before him!! He must complete this Holy Quest with only guidance from above and his trusty .22CB's

Let us now bow our heads in a moment of silence for the quest set before our Brother Sharps. :stir:

Well....last night I think I learned definitely what I suspected a few pages ago. A 'dillo's leathery shell evidently is not a good conductor of electricity. We FINALLY got a nice rain early last night and I thought ok, ground is wet so tonight is the night. 2:30 this morning upon returning to bed from the bathroom I had just settled in when I head three cries right outside my BR window exactly like the one Firpo posted. I thought "well finally". Such was not the case. Just looked outside and no 'dead 'dillo. AAARRGGGHHHHHH!!!!!!!!

I feel for you Vic, & I'm glad you're not dealing with a rabbit. This thread has that Elmer Fudd feeling...

Could be OS....I thought it might be, "Holy Cow!! What a charge this is!!!" Maybe I need a heavier wire. I ran it with electric fence wire which I'd guess is about #14 or #16. It comes off #12 and isn't long enough to have much, if any voltage drop but, it might not be carrying enough amperage.....but honestly, I doubt that. You'd think a fresh rain, wet ground and bare feet would provide enough ground....if the current can flow through the shell. I think there simply isn't enough conductivity in their shell....but I could be nuts too. Maybe I need to lower the wire and let it touch its nose to it....maybe.

SR, I could deal with a rabbit. We had a couple living nicely in our garden this year. A live trap and a couple days and I relocated them out of the country.

Funny story about a electric fence long ago when I was just a kid(65 or 70 yr ago) our neighbor had put up one of those weed burner electric fence. The farm dog hiked up his leg and peed on it. Poor thing would not ever go thru a fence after that. You would have to open the gate for him, no more crawling thru or jumping over a fence. Poor dog was never exactly right after that day.

I had a friend in grade school who did that while were we're out hunting. His Dad's Belgian Browning A-5 went airborne and he grabbed his crotch. Lee was never right after that either.

Hope he didn't spend a lot of time licking himself like the neighbors dog did.;)
:lol:...Not that I saw. His Dad was about to choke him because the last words he told Lee was "Do Not take my Browning." 'Course Lee was always a bit hard headed...about a lot of things.

That has had me laughing for the last hour or so. Good thing I swallowed my coffee first!!

Poor dog, though.

Maybe you need to use 220 volt instead of 110. Or put some bait right on the wire so they bite it or lick it. That will get by the leathery skin.

The next time I kill one I'll get out my VOLT/OHM meter and check the resistance on him.

Maybe you need to get more personally involved in the execution.

Tell him to "open wide and say AHHHHHHHHHHH."
