Hmm - how do you deal with them?? Rory has been going coyote hunting every weekend with Brad and another buddy - this past weekend they saw 10 within a couple of hours - 3 of which they got. This was out on the prairie for a rancher that has lost livestock to them.
Well this year they have moved in closer to us then I ever think they have been before. Needless to say we have lost 5 of our 7 ducks - they were penned under our outside light even. We have moved our other 2 ducks. Saturday before last we woke to 2 ducks gone, 1 dead, and 1 dead missing it's head and neck. There are no dig in spots - so it was something that had to jump over the 3 ft panels. Then Sunday we woke to another one dead with the head and neck gone. Whatever it is has Schmeckle scared too - as he messed on the deck which isn't like him at all.
Rory has been going out with his gun everytime the dog barks now - and I mean not just a woof woof - hysterically barking. As I'm worried for my little goats - hope it doesn't find its way in with them. If you have any ideas how to keep things like this away I'm open to suggestions - the boys are having a fun time marking our property
but that hasn't seem to detour whatever it is.
