Getting Rid of Coyote-Help Needed - Page 2

post #11 of 13

I would query these folks, I looked over the Alaska Regulations and it would be best to get them to tell you how they would like you to address the situation.

An electric fence that's about as thick as a rope. They have, I believe, 4 strands of it. This is a reinforcement to the cattle panels that they used to fence in their chicken area. It not only keeps out the bears, but their two german shepherd dogs as well. Pretty sure  a coyote wouldn't get through, either. 

Chickens off and on for 25+ years and still learning.

Can you pepper him with bb's so he gets the message? Or maybe a pellet gun. Make him feel it. We have a problem with a coyote also...

In my house there are: 4 barred rocks, 4 welsummer bantams, 3 buff orpingtons, 6 rabbits (mini lops), 1 standard poodle, 1 leopard gecko.
