thanks for all the offers, there's been someone on watch most of the time since last evening..
for those of you that know my property, whatever it is comes in from the town side and around the shop, I have nothing left in ducks, the three that survived are older males and will be put in freezer due to injury.
i am really concerned that when it comes back and finds the duck pen empty, itmay circle the barn and end up in the chicken area.
count so far
some are just plain missing but in this weather and circumstance I do not have hope of them returning.
and oddly enough with all of this my granddaughter noticed that 1 of the little 7 week old kittens is missing.
talk to a neighbor from over the back ridge who reports seeing a couple of coyote, and there's also a new neighbor about half mile away with a couple of big dogs...my bet is on those 2 things or both..but the dogs would of came past the house on the chicken side and the cat food dishes were untouched...
and this will come to an end,,,hopefully I will not offend anyone here but everyone on guard are instructed to shoot to kill.if this is a neighbor dog they will be notified affter the fact. camera should be working some time today also.
guess I am not as toughened to the farmlife as I should be, cause I admit just sitting down on the cold ground of that duck pen and losing it after the second attack..
