    I was just putting my birds away for the night and i closed my barn door and about 30 feet on the other side of my pen was a cyote standing there . I thought it was my dog but iwas was tall and had a tail so then it clicked that it was a cyote . I started yelling "GET OUT OF HERE " " GO ON GET " and it ran away .

    Lucky i just put the ducks and geese away cuz my gate is stuck open because of the snow and ice , HE could of got right in and had its fill !!

    You were lucky! I learned not to head to the barns or pens without a gun.

    Brazen little bugger thats for sure.
    please dont go back down there un armed , it knows there is food and you may not be so lucky next time.
    sometimes yelling, they run away sometimes they run straight for you.
    please dont take chances with your safety.
