So 2 nights ago I got up at 5 like usual to let my dog out and start morning chores. I went to the slider on my deck opened it to let dog out and saw my chicken coop door in splinters and pieces on the ground !! Feathers everywhere So I woke my DH he came out sure enough all but 4 birds are dead. I found what we now call Merida after "Brave" the hen with her wing hanging and a large chunk taken out but she survived . Last night the largest bear I have ever seen over 300lb easy came back, and stayed about 4 hours walking around my goat and baby chick/retired hen house. I am soooo afraid he is going to eat my goats and remaning chickens!!
Anyway here are some photos of the damage he has caused not to mention I have kids who play out back there and he is NOT afraid of us at all!!!!
