It's gone, with thanks to one of the posts on this board. I used Reese Peanut butter cups in the Havahart and there the fat SOB was this morning. I took the trap outside coverd it with a large cloth and began filling a garbage pail big enough to submerge the traP.
When it was filled, I picked up the trap and began lowering it into the pail, never realizing the the trap door holder would swing free and the squirrel would pop it open -- which it did, and away it went as fast as it coud go.
I'm pretty sure I know where it got into the house and will to tend to that tomorow. Meantime, I've set the baited trap blocking it.
Thanks for all the advice and a special thanks to the poster who put me on to the Reese peanut butter cups.
