    Looks like a nightly visitor has been stalking the coop. Can you identify the scat pile for me?

    My vote is bear also. I have stepped in it here a few times. Smells REALLY BAD!!! Are there bears in your area?

    This might sound naive, but wouldn't bear poo be bigger?

    I've seen all kinds of canine poop and it looks wild -- not like a canine.
