I want raccoon revenge. Or at least a truce.

A raccoon killed my chicken. I want another chicken. How do I deter or kill the beastie?

I live in a downtown neighborhood frequented by raccoons. Today I came home to a dusting of feathers in my backyard and the disappearance of my lovely, egg-laying chicken. I'm pretty sure the raccoon struck during the day, and it's a mama raccoon that's been coming around with her baby. She's opened our kitchen window and stole bread from from the counter on a few occasions. I've chased her away lots of times, but she easily alights into a tree with baby beastie in tow. So, how do I get rid of this raccoon so that my next chicken won't fall prey to a terrible death?
