    I have a nice pond with what I thought was a great no climb electric fence around it. I think he still might have got in under the electric wire. I am mad as hell. I set a couple traps today. I'm hoping I can get him before he gets anymore. They were just showing signs that they were going to start breeding. Makes me sick.

    ok good cause i would hate for you to relocate him and have him come back and get more of your flock [​IMG]

    do you have a coup you can lock them in at night till you get him that would be the best thing

    heaven seams to be a great relocation home [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Ditto!

    I do hope you find the problem. It is horrible to have tragedy like this happen.
