thought that I'd seen it all here, coyote, grey fox, red fox, hawk and racoons have all checked out my coop. this morning around 8 am, heard the chickens raise a ruckus and the dogs started barking like crazy. look out the door and see a small grey animal with a whitish bob tail standing by the coop, took off when it heard me. only saw it for a second, but long enough to know it wasn't fox or coyote...in fact when I saw the white tail thought for one confused second it was deer but then realized it was waay too small. didn't even know we had bobcat in CT, what a shock. went on-line and found a picture of a bobcat at an Oxford residence a couple of weeks ago, hunting muskrat on a pond, so they are here for sure! chicks were out in pen at time of visit but ran squawking into coop and are fine.
