There was a BEAR in my front yard earlier this evening!! I grabbed my camera (and my gun) and ran out to close up my coop! I didn't get a picture of him... but last week my neighbors found his... um.. poop in their yard... How likely is he to break into my coop??? I live in a very rural part of the state. There isn't any real yummy or stinky food in my coop (other than the chicks! ) and I think he'd be more likely to raid our compost heap... but.... Has anyone else had trouble with bears bothering their chickens????
